    I got remote disc up and running on a windows pc. Can I use it to install windows XP on to my MB Air? I dont care if I use parallels, fusion or bootcamp, i dont care if it is windows xp or windows 98. I just need windows running on my system as I need to run just one windows based application.

    Any help or tutorials?

    Install http://www.virtualbox.org/ on your mac, create a ISO image of your Windows CD using a tool like http://infrarecorder.org/ or whatever you use to burn CDs on the windows machine. Use the ISO with VirtualBox to build a virtual windows machine and your done.

    If you're using a WinXP upgrade disk, make sure it's a slipstreamed ISO image or else things get sticky when the WinXP install asks for your previous Windows CD to check for upgrade eligibility...
