I saw someone pointed out that there apple wireless keyboard does not work with their pc, they said it is not compat with windows. Does this mean that if you boot up in windows through boot camp then the blue tooth keyboard/mouse will not function?

It's certainly a possibility. I have not tested this myself...maybe another member of the forums can?

Windows on the Mac - Forums and free support for Boot Camp, Parallels, and VMWare.

I think the earlier versions of boot camp didn't support the wireless devices from apple, but it definitely works now.

My wireless keyboard is found immediately.

I have Vista RC1 installed and my Bluetooth Keyboard and MM work.

BUT, you will need a USB keyboard and Mouse to install Vista/XP. And under Vista the eject button doesn't work. in fact the whole right side panel does not work
