There's a sticky thread on insanelymac.com about running windows XP on this hardware.
AFAI have read over it, it shoud be possible to get most of the hardware working:

A very interesting resource is the compatibility list for your hardware and Windows XP, check it out at:

What version of OS X are you running.  I've done the same as you with Leopard and after I was done, use the Leopard disk to install all of the drivers that I needed. After XP is installed, inserting the Leopard disk will install all of the bootcamp drivers whether you used bootcamp to set it up or not.

Can't say that I've tried using the isight camera under Windows though.

Could you please post the device ids of the devices missing?

In your control panel, click on "System" -> "Devices or Hardware" -> "Device Manager" and on each unknown hardware item right-click to open the context menu. Choose properties, click on details and write down the PCI_VEN and DEV ids, should look like:

PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_803A

Knowing these values, you can have a look at http://pciids.sf.net to find out what hardware it is. That should narrow down the drivers needed to get it working, as I don't know what exact model/type of a Macbook you're trying to get XP working.

OK, your Audio card is a SigmaTel HD Audio chip.
According to multiple Macbook related forums, the driver from bootcamp should work.

The grahpics card should be an Intel 945GM or 946GZ and according to some forums, the standard Intel drivers should work:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2301

If they don't, you need to get the 946GZ (aka Lakeport) drivers from Intel:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2582&lang=eng

The USB device is not listed in the pciids database, but 05AC is Apple, so I think it's the isight camera.
Drivers for the isight camera should be available here:

http://www.stevienova.com/Drivers/iSight.zip

Just a short question: Have you tried to insert the Leopard DVD into your CD drive when Windows is running? All the necessary drivers should be available there according to apple.com... (Maybe this is a dumb question, but I've never installed XP on a Macbook).

agriesser...that's what I suggested earlier.  I've both installed XP via bootcamp as well as bare metal on a couple of different MACs...although not a Macbook...still it should just work since the leopard disk would contain all the necessary drivers.

Forgot to post the links to the audio drivers. Here's an instruction for getting the SigmaTel driver to work if it doesn't play sound:

http://forums.techguy.org/apple-macintosh/481247-xp-mac-boot-camp-issue-2.html

In case your card needs the RealTek HD drivers, go for them:

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Some users reported that they need to install a hotfix from microsoft to make sound glitches go away.
As it's a regular windows update, it shouldn't hurt, so please check that you have it installed:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=CA0F2007-18B5-4112-8BD6-8BF4BD3130B9&displaylang=en

Just in case you're experiencing problems with your WLAN card too (and if it's an Atheros card), the following driver should help:

I know, but as the author didn't answer to this question, I asked again. Maybe we'll get an answer. It could even be that he has no Leopard DVD...

I don't think that there's a solution currently. AFAI have read in several forums, there are isight drivers in the bootcamp drivers CD, but no real isight application. So, do you have the bootcamp CD?

Does the keyboard stuff work now?
