You need to insert your OS X disc while booted up in Vista and install the Windows drivers.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

It's not the applications disk. It's Disk 1 (System). Pop it in, and Windows Vista should autoplay the disc. If not, you'll need to open it from Start => Computer => DVD drive and run the setup.

By the way, all of this is covered in the Boot Camp documentation which you were prompted to print out during the Boot Camp Assistant process. I would recommend you do so now and save yourself some hassle:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
