Ok, I'm a little confused!

I went through the whole boot camp thing and successfully installed Windows XP.

I looked through numerous documents to figure that part out, but I'm pretty sure I did it right, though not 100% positive...more like 95%.

Now, all I have to do is put in my Mac OS X 10.6.7 install dvd (while I'm in Windows), and install the drivers, but whenever I insert the disk, it tells me that I need Windows 7!!

So I have no idea what to do...I need some kind of internet to activate my Windows key, but I cant connect to wifi without the Mac cd drivers!

This has been driving me crazy for the past 4 hours!!

Also, I tried downloading Bootcamp V.2.1, onto a disc...loading it into Windows...does absolutely nothing, recognizes that there is something there, but won't run...also tried via a flash drive...did same thing.

...Also tried the disc method for Bootcamp V.3.1(?), but it said I needed previous versions, because that was an update. (But at least this disc did something!)

Hopefully this isn't too confusing...my brain feels like my background right now...a Van Gogh painting!!

-Thank you for your time!!
