    as stated, is there any way to control parallels from a seperate keyboard and mouse? This would simulate two computers. So I'll have my normal mouse & keyboard for the mac side and then another mouse and keyboard that work just under parallels. The goal is to be able to play a game on the mac side AND the parallels pc side...but I'll settle for the game running on the mac side and teamspeak + Internet running on the parallels pc side.

    It's important to note that I have dual monitors (so mac on right monitor and pc on left) and I'm running a intel quad 2.66, 5gigs of ram, and an Ati x1900xt. In my sig it says 2x Nvidia 7300's but those aren't plugged in.

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think parallels has the ability to designate input devices, but would be cool if it did.
    More notably I think it's funny you want to play a game on the mac side and not vice versa :)

    Well I have cod2 for mac and it runs great on OSX so no need to boot-camp it. But if somehow I could play while my wife plays, that'd be sweet!

    But I'll settle for browsing the Internet while she plays if it ends up that parallels can't play it.
