Maybe I should get Leopard now. The update wouldn't work with BootCamp 1.4 so I guess I might have to upgrade to Leopard now. A speed increase would be good. Does SP3 have better battery life on BootCamp?

I have noticed no increase in battery life.

Part 1:

But there is a way around this first go into system under control panel and select advance and select the processor and virtual memory adjustments select in the first tab of the new windows adjust for best performance then go into virtual memory and et the minimum memory to 1000 (1 gig) then set the max to 4000 (4-gig) and you are done hit set and close the window.

Part 2:
Go into display select screen saver select the power saving functions tell the power saving functions to shut of the screen every 5-7 minutes then set the computer shut down if no activity present to 20-minutes this will increase your battery life it did wonders for me i have my battery life at 7 hours with windows xp pro service pack 3 no issues.
