    I have an iMac (250G) and I would like to install Windows XP pro on Parallels.
    During the installation phase i got to some questions which i would appreciate your help:

    1. Disk repartition - what should i do here, should i change the something?
    2. Disk format ?

    i would appreciate your advise on how to install the Windows XP successfully.

    In my opinion, creating a container (disk) that expands as you need it is the best idea. Anyway, when setup loads all files for install, agree to the EULA, ESC to skip any repairing. You want to choose (probably the only) partition available. Format it NTFS (quick) [otherwise you'll be there for a bit waiting]. C to create a partition, size in MB, enter to finalize, enter again to have it ask you what to format it as, F for format, and that's about it.
