Greetings all -- over the weekend I installed XP on my MacBook, ran most of the updates, everything ran fine. Tested out some games I've wanted to run with no viable Mac port, one of them being Sim City. After noticing the trackpad issues others have commented on I checked for updates from Apple, found the trackpad update, installed, and now receive the BSOD after running Sim City for 10 minutes. Anyone else see this issue in this game or any other games? I plan to uninstall the trackpad update and use an external mouse.

Did you install Apple's drivers from your OS X DVD?

Yes, I installed the drivers from the DVD and ran the Apple Software Update utility in XP - the trackpad is worthless in XP without the update, but, if I want to play games I guess I can't use the trackpad update.
