This was NOT a problem in Vista, but under XP, even with a successful install of BootCamp 2.1, I still had to browse to the following location -repeatedly- for several devices, with the SM Bus driver definitely being one of them.
(Now... by "successful" installation ..... I of course mean that I wasted 6 hours of my life that I'll never get back, because my Leopard disk caused XP to blue screen repeatedly mid-way through installation .... and then the 2.1 update from Apple (which claims to work for an upgrade or a new install) actually only works for an upgrade, and I was forced to download it from somewhere in China and PRAY it wasn't chock full of malware ... )
That said, I don't know where it is on the Leopard disk, but here's where it was in the media I downloaded and installed successfully:
C:\Documents and Settings\rob\Desktop\Boot Camp 21 Installer\Boot Camp 2.1 Installer\BOOT CAMP\DRIVERS\INTEL\CHIPSET\ALL
<--- Hope this gives you some indication of where to search. Pity that I have to resort to downloading this software from China, and then manually browsing for drivers after running their installer ... as you apparently also have to do....
