    Can I have bootcamp and parallels installed on the same iMac (2GB ram). That is, lets say I'm in Mac OS X and want to do something real quick in windows without rebooting...can I use parallels? But then later if I wantto play a game or something use bootcamp to get into XP? Will they both work together? Thanks!

    As of latest beta they should.

    You might have to reactivate Windows though, if you use your Bootcamp partition in Parallels.

    They always have done but with the latest beta you can run your boot camp partition in parallels thus saving HD space and stopping the need to install the same programs twice, choose 'more options' when it asks you for your disk in parallels, after installing Boot Camp...
