I've been using windows 7 in bootcamp since the first beta was released with no problems. The leopard DVD found all the drivers it needed for the windows 7 side. The was the 10.5.6 retail install disk.

I think it just needs to be Vista drivers and it sits on WIn7 - Win7 is just an updated Vista after all.....
