Open Applications, Utilities, Boot Camp Assistant. It will state in the properties box what version it is. Mine says version 2.0 which I believe is the latest - at least I have not received any updates to it. I'm also running Leopard 10.5.2.

As for XP SP3, I would wait a bit. However, if you're planning on installing XP using Boot Camp the instructions say XP SP2. Now whether that means XP SP2 only or SP2 and later, I have no idea. That's why I suggest waiting for now.

Regards.
