So here is the problem....

i recently got my own mac its really awesome and everything but i installed windows Xp on it. Originally with the boot camp method i was supposed to get the drivers burnt on a c.d. while installation. but Boot camp expired and the new os Leopard has got boot camp thing pre installed. so no Beta version..

now i start up Xp and it doesn't even detect the internet connection. i mean it automatically connects doesn't it? i go to the device manager and i find that it does not have the drivers installed for the ethernet and some other stuff so....

Please Help.....fast!!!

Trash man--if you have a Leopard DVD, then that acts as the driver CD--just stick it in while Windows is active and you can install the drivers from there.

If you're still using Tiger and you still have the original Boot Camp Assistant Beta app (even though it's expired), you can get out the driver disk by following these instructions.
