    I created 4 profiles/users in OS X; when I installed Boot Camp, it was in my wife's profile (she will be the primary user). My son went into his profile last night to use Garageband and I noticed there was no Windows disk on his desktop, nor was the Fusion icon on his dock.

    So, can you/should you install Boot Camp for more than 1 user in OS X?

    That's just not how it works. Besides, without the proper software, you can't do squat with the partition in OS X anyway, so it doesn't matter if he can't "see" it.

    If you want multiple Windows users, create them from within Windows.

    Actually, there are multiple users in Windows, and are visible when I boot into Windows (via Fusion 2.0) in my wife's profile; what I'm saying is when I go into my son's OS X profile, neither Boot Camp, nor Fusion is available. So, I cannot run a virtual Windows from his profile.
