    Hello,

    I finallly got around to downloading Parallels. I currently have bootcamp running on my iMac. What is the best and easiest way to convert the bootcamp partition into parallels without having to reinstall windows?

    thanks.

    Point Parallels at the BootCamp'd windows partition to use as it's disk image.

    Should I just open up Parallels and do a Windows express install or do I want to use the Parallels transporter?

    Ok, I got Parallels up and running. My next question is, how can I connect to the internet on windows if I am running a network on Mac (wireless network)?

    Have you installed Parallels tools? It should work automagically...
