    Another potential pitfall is that within Windows, you can not access your Mac OS X partition without a 3rd party program like MacDrive.
    Does this mean I can't share files between the two partitions? Like, say I have a file from a program I worked on in CrossOver, but now I'm moving to a real boot camp install, and would like that file on the windows OS because the application only works well in real windows. What can I do for that?

    Also, what's a built-in optical disc drive?

    Finally, I got this message when I attempted to partition earlier:

    The Disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved.

    Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.
    No idea what it means. I don't know how to format it. Help please?

    One more question-will the mac's built-in mic/webcam work with boot camp?

    Mac OS X can read NTFS partitions, but it can not write them. Conversely, Windows can not see HFS+ partitions. You can purchase a program like Paragon NTFS for Mac, which both allows you to read/write NTFS, and also read/write HFS+ within Windows.

    How about just installing the program in Windows from its installation disc?

    The little slot that you put CDs and DVDs into.

    I suggest you do a search, this has been covered many, many times.

    I hope this question makes sense ...
    I would imagine that the Mac version is very similar, but you should probably ask your professor.

    Make sure you install the drivers. This is the last step of Boot Camp installation. While running Windows, pop in your Leopard disc (or System Disc 1) and the drivers should begin installing automatically.

    It's a free app, so DL'ing it is no problem. But what worries me is my files. Although the solution of a flash drive just came to me... Feel kinda stupid.

    Derp.

    Okay, new problem. I have the windows OS as only an .iso file. What can I do to mount it with boot camp or otherwise?

    Boot Camp has very specific requirements of Windows. It must be a retail disc or a non-branded OEM "for System Builders" disc. If it's XP, it must have SP2 integrated.

    Where did your ISO file come from?

    I think this is worth repeating.

    Yeah. I'd rather not say. That in its own is probably explanatory.

    Reboot your machine, holding down the Option key. Boot from your Macintosh HD partition when prompted. Change your Startup Disk in System Preferences back to Macintosh HD. Then re-run the Boot Camp Assistant to remove the partition.

    Well, I got it to work. Windows is now installed. But I have the annoying problem that it won't connect to the internet for some reason. I have the feeling that I missed a step in the installation.

    I looked at this and it tells me I should've burned a mac drivers CD. But I never was given the option. I'm kinda stumbling in the dark here.
