    no boot camp is 10.5 only, however i do believe you can simply download the drivers from apple.com, or if you know somebody with leopard they coulp simply burn you the driver disc. From my personal boot camp exp the apple bluetooth driver is fully functional in xp sp2

    My mac mini probably had a very new version of the firmware.

    I was able to install a clean XP cd outright. Ran the bootcamp.exe on the wosx disk and voila drivers, all installed.

    Well i have been trying to get my bluetooth working for 2 weeks now and no luck...so u said u have only windows xp installed right? no boot camp? i have only windows xp installed as well but everything driver wise is working except for bluetooth because windows xp with service pack 2 automatically installs the built in windows bluetooth driver....any more info would be great..

    That's because you need the apple bootcamp drivers from either the leopard disk, the bootcamp beta or from apple.com.

    I have a mac mini with Tiger and a Macbook with Leopard. Is it possible to install win xp in the mac mini and then upload the drivers by using the Leopard CD that came with the Macbook?

    What drivers do you mean? The Bootcamp drivers? Natedawg has had good luck using Sun's Virtualbox. It is free, so download it and try it on the Mini rather than try to get Tiger to do that.
