yeah..have them rebuilt at your LBS with a Campy hub and cassette. Unless I am wrong (which is distinctly possible), the thin Campy chain won't work very well on a shimano cassette and a campy cassette won't fit on a shimanon hub.

Not to be a smarta**, but if you have a new bike, put on the right wheels. Don't try to wedge shimano onto campy. IMHO

It is possible to buy a cassette that is compatable with Shimano hubs and a Campy 10 speed drive train. Mavic makes one for example.

I tried that on my Ksyrium and Velomax wheels built for Shimano. I did not like them, neither the Mavic cassettes or the Wheels Manufacturing modified Shimano cassettes. The Mavic ones are a bit chunky and did not shift well. Both of them were very heavy.

I'd say either get a new wheel or have it rebuilt.

If you have a set made in 2001 (and perhaps earlier), you can change the cassette body to one specifically for Campy cassettes. I understand that the bodies are hard to find in the US but I've not had a problem locating them in the UK.

Worth looking into for owners of Ksyrium's.
