I just partitioned my hard drive on my new MacBook Pro and need to be able to access the internet through the windows XPHome SP3 I just added.  It has been so long since I did this I don't remember how.  I'd like to set it up as wireless but can hard wire if I need to.  Please provide or point me to step by step instructions.  Thank you

Have you installed the drivers for the Mac hardware from the OS X installer DVD on windows? Once you do that you will be able to use the built-in wireless to connect to your wireless.

No, all I did was install Windows XP.  How do I do that?

Put your os x disk in while in Windows. Open the disk and open the boot camp folder. Run setup.exe. This will install all of the hardware drivers. When that is finished, you will have everything you need to connect to the internet. The location of setup may be a little different on a 10.6 disk, I was looking at a 10.5 disk.

Inset the Install DVD that came with your Mac and that should ask to install the drivers for windows.

You can also download the driver installs from this site:

Once you install the drivers for Mac hardware on windows, all should work.
