1. It's Windows. That WILL ALWAYS happen, no matter what machine it runs on. But fret not, it is not the machine's fault.


2. No. No. They will fail to install. No. Yes, they are. Install the drivers on the Bootcamp DVD. NOTHING ELSE.


3. Yes. But I do not suggest it. Someday, you will use it. If you absolutely must, here is a tutorial. But I suggest you not do it.


4. You will likely find that SP2 will be even buggier, I know I do, but in order to get the best support you need to upgrade to SP2, and use Vista as sparingly as possible, which is the best advice I can possibly give.


You're Welcome.

windows 7 rtm may be more stable, but I suggest you wait until it is actually released. M$'s honesty track is not the greatest, so rtm may not actually be rtm, and it will start to slowly kill itself the day that 7 actually releases.


The only reason I suggested that you not use nVidia's own drivers as opposed to Apple's is, that, well, Apple made them for their exact equipment setup. A chip maker's drivers are often more ambiguous, ie more compatible with other devices and ICs. You will experience more bugs and glitches with the non-specialized drivers, and this will not be outweighed by the benefits of a tiny bit of extra performance granted by THE most up to date drivers.


No problem.
