Hey, everyone! I recently purchased a MacBook (first Mac purchase ever) and am EXTREMELY pleased. I have had some problems though, and thought I'd post and see if anyone could help me out.

My problem is running Windows XP via Boot Camp. I downloaded Boot Camp a few weeks back, installed, and burned the Mac Drivers for XP. Installed XP fine, and went to install the Mac Drivers off the disc I burned. This is where I ran into some problems. I completed about 99% of the Mac Drivers install before I got a message that I couldn't complete the installation all the way because of an error. Well, some of the drivers must have installed because I noticed that my eject button WAS working. So, I kind of shrugged it off and tried connecting to the internet. Couldn't do it. My network adapter was showing up, but no internet activity was present. I was wondering if this was a Mac Driver issue? I can connect to the internet on OSX just fine, no problems at all. Also, I've noticed that sometimes when I shut down or restart Windows that it will lockup at the shutdown screen. Another driver error maybe? Any suggestions for this would help. My biggest concern is connecting to the net in XP.

I also wanted to mention that I realize Boot Camp has been updated recently with new drivers. I downloaded the newest Boot Camp last night and burned a new drivers CD through that, but had the same problems trying to install in XP. Would I need to uninstall all versions of Boot Camp and maybe download the newest version again and try that? I didn't delete the older installation I had of Boot Camp because I'm new to Mac and still getting used to the OS. Not sure how to completely remove programs yet.

Thanks in advance guys. And I apologize if this has been a past topic, but I have done my homework through Google and I'm not finding much help at all. That's why I figured I'd post here. Thanks!
