    Leopard 10.5/Bootcamp?

    Hi
    I've just installed Leopard 10.5 on a eMac, main reason being they wanted to also run Windows on this machine. No problem with the upgrade, however according to page 65 of the little 'Welcome to Leopard' book you begin by "opening the Boot Camp Setup Assistant (in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder)". Well in my Utilities folder there is no Boot Camp Setup Assistant - lots of stuff such as Activity Monitor, AirPort Utility, Audio MIDI Setup, RAID Utility, Bluetooth File Exchange etc etc. Where is it? Many thanks.

    Leopard 10.5/Bootcamp?

    Just occured to me. It's not an Intel processor is it? Is that the issue?

    Yeah, the best you can do with that would be Virtual PC which is dog slow even on a Windows machine. I'd hate to think what it's like on a Mac.

    I used to try and use it on an eMac G4 1.2Ghz.....It made running youtube through a 14.kbps modem seem very very fast.
