I have tried searching for the answers to my questions, but to no avail.

I currently have installed the most current version of bootcamp and a version of Win XP Pro SP2.
My Problems:
1. The trackpad does not work, nor does an external usb mouse(dell)
2. When attempting to install the drivers i get several errors.
-Streamci error
-Error -1602 fatal error, consult Microsoft installer...etc.
3. Built in iSight driver error.

Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing I could suggest is to reinstall and see what you get

Problem is, I've tried re-installing...several times heh. Maybe my copy of windows is no good...It is a corporate Win XP Pro version, yet still has SP2. I'll just look into purchasing a new copy when vista comes out if the price is low enough.

Anyone else see the irony in this statement? Is there such a thing as a good copy of Windows?

...

The corporate version of Windows isn't, I don't believe, any different than a consumer version. The only difference is in the license key. I installed both my Bootcamp and Parallels installs (prior to the Parallels beta that now supports using Bootcamp partitions) using a corporate copy of Windows and didn't run into anything like you're seeing.

Oh hmm...well if XP goes low enough in price when vista comes out, then i'll look into purchasing it, i'm not that much in need of it to spend $200 or whatever it is for it.
