    I just purchased a new Mac, ran boot camp, whereby I created a split, loaded XP Home 3 and got it all running.
    Then, loaded VMWare Fusion 2, got it running (can jump between XP and OSX smoothly) but when I shut down XP, it tells me to load the tools by running Virtual Machine. However, I cannot find any VM in my programs folder... what do I do?

    loading Vmware tools is done in the vmware program itself. While running the program and having booted up XP, click in the top menu "Virtual Machine->Install VMware tools" and then an installer will appear in your XP operating system. Run through this installer and Vmware tools will be installed. This allows you to drag and drop files from one OS to the other and helps with other things.
