    To fix the crashing issue, you need to download the newer version of parallels. That happened to me at first, every time i tried to start it would Kernal panic. Download the never version and you should be all set.

    guessing I can get that from Parallels.com
    ?

    Edit: Doing an Update for Parallels right now
    Edit #2: Is it possible to use Parallels with an External Hard Drive.. that install was almost painless...
