I'm using boot camp with my 2.0ghz 1gb ram macbook, and whenever I install a program it installs extremely slow, I tried waiting it for about an hour with gta san andreas and it does eventually work but it takes forever. Anyone have suggestions?

Cam is an unknown at this point

Does the game load slowly too? There should be practically no load times in the game. If it does chances are you dont have an up to date version of bootcamp - the early versions had an extremely slow hard drive access rate, i couldnt do anything in windows for the first month i had my computer!
QUOTE Thanks
