Download available from Apple's site

Apple has updated its Boot Camp to support Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3).

The latest version of Boot Camp – the software that enables Intel-based Macs to run Windows operating systems in addition to Mac OS X - is available for download from Apple's website.

Apple has posted three separate Boot Camp 2.1 updaters - one for Windows XP, one for 32-bit Vista operating systems, and one for 64-bit Vista operating systems.

Apple indicates that each update "addresses issues and improves compatibility" with the version of Windows it is intended for. Apple said that Boot Camp 2.1 is required before installing Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3).
