Assuming Power pc's will be able to download the new Leopard operating system does this mean Bootcamp will be compatible with the older power pc's (as in they dont have intel technology)?

Boot camp is only possible as the intel Macs are x86 intel chips...
Windows isn't compatible with the PowerPC chips in older Macs.
The only way to run windows software is to create a virtual x86 chip and then fool programs into running on that. This is what VirtualPC does for example. But that extra work of emulating a different kind of processor really bogs things down and is the reason why Virtual PC is so slow.
