Do either of you guys have a sense why rEFIt is more popular? Does boot
camp cost $$?

Boot camp is actually a free utility that comes with OSX. Its designed towards making windows work on a mac. Boot camp has two important parts, one is the interface in OSX that allows you to resize HFS/HFS+ file systems, the second is the changes to the boot sequence that allow a user go into a non apple operating system.

rEFIt tends to work better it you want to customize things. It also provides some basic tools when things aren't going well.
