    Hi, i have bootcamp already installed w/a 30 gig partition for xp to reside and was thinking about installing parallels. If i install parallels on my iMac, will i have to install xp twice? thanks, Ray

    Pretty much you will. The current Beta of Parallels lets you use your XP Bootcamp partition with Parallels but apparently a lot of people have some issues with that. So at the moment, you basically have to have two copies of XP. One for Bootcamp, One for Parallels if you want to use them both at the same time.

    You're wrong, with the latest parallels, you can use your boot camp partition
