    When i've looked on the net for guides as to how to install windows they all say you need the original Mac operating system discs, something to do with drivers.

    Are they absolutely neccesary because I have to do exactly that to a Macbook but there are no discs so i'm wondering if I would get away with just downloading the neccesary drivers.

    Yes, you can download the nVidia drivers from nVidia.com, but certain hardware accessories (e.g. the bluetooth or the iSight camera) need the drivers off the disc.

    I'm sure there are places on the internet where you can download those drivers though.
