    The XP installation on the Mac is just as vulnerable as on a PC, but the viruses wont affect the Leopard/Tiger installation :)

    I've never heard of a case where someone did, but it's better to be sure anyway. AVG Free is probably about all you need.

    A mixture of AVG Free and Ad-Aware Free always worked well for me :)

    does that mean that having more than one os is safer than having only one os?
