Hey everyone well i just installed bootcamp for my 2.4 mbp and was wondring if there was a way i could tell that everything was installed and working correctly aslo i am having a bit of a problem with the trackpad the only way u can click is with the button instead of being able to just tap the touchpad is this normal or did something not install correctly?
Any help or suggestions would be great!

There's an option for trackpad gestures in System Preferences. As for BootCamp, follow the instructions for installing WinXP and see what happens - that'll tell you if it worked or not.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

No, that's correct. The Windows drivers for the touchpad don't support tap-to-click yet.

They work fine for me as well. Have you tried playing with the mouse settings in the Control Panel?

Yeah, I've messed with all the settings that would affect tap-to-click - many of them aren't available. Also, I've read all over this board and others that tap-to-click isn't supported yet.

What gives?
