    Problem installing drivers on Vista Ultimate 64 bit...
    I put the Apple Leopard DVD in with the drivers on it and it installed some of the drivers, but I got this error message about 2 or 3 times.
    "Service key agent failed to start. Verify that you have sifficient privalges to start system services." with 3 options, Ignore, Abort, Retry.
    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this????
    This is on a Macbook Pro by the way

    64-bit versions of Vista are not currently supported by Boot Camp, unfortunately.

    Really? First I've heard of it. A cursory search of Apple's support site yields no mention of updated drivers. Link please?

    EDIT: Found this article. Apparently this for for late 2007 and 2008 Mac Pros only, which would explain the problems you're having with your MacBook Pro.

    cwa is correct, the 64-bit drivers are only for the Mac Pros.

    Some people have tried to use them for the coinciding parts in the other models, but there are still a few devices that do not have 64-bit drivers, not to mention the fact that it takes quite a bit of tinkering to get the Mac Pro drivers working on the other machines.

    AFAIK, it's the same deal. 64-bit drivers just haven't been written for all the different drivers for the entire Intel line-up. It sounds like support is limited to the latest generation of Mac Pros.
