Missing Boot Camp from some MacBooks with Pre-Installed Leopard... :(

I've recently discovered that there's a batch of MacBooks with preinstalled Leopard but without Boot Camp Assistant installed. All I've got to say is that it's a pain in the ass... i've tried from installing the boot camp assistant from the original Disk 1 that comes with the MacBook... and I've even tried clean installing a fresh Leopard from the disks provided when u get a MacBook...

Both gave disappointing results.. first of all... you're able to run Boot Camp Assistant.. and partition your hard drive and even successfully install Windows on that partition... the problem is when you start up the machine and press the 'alt/option' key to enable you to choose which OS to boot up from... it only shows the Mac's OS and you can't even see the Windows partition...

The only solution so far is to tell people that , the MacBook will be set to boot up from Windows.. and if there's a need to boot up in Mac , just hold on to the 'alt/option' key to boot up from Mac OS... ridiculously stupid if you ask me.. hmmmm....

here's where you can find Boot Camp installer if you happen to own a MacBook like the ones i mentioned...

/Volumes/Mac OS X Install Disc 1/System/Installation/Packages/BootCamp.pkg
