When you run Parallels from bootcamp, can you still share files between both OSes? I was reading forums and some say you can others say you can't. I may have misunderstood though. Also, are there disadvantages in running parallels from bootcamp other than a the fact that you can't make your partition bigger? And it appears to be slower? (is this true?) I'm not quite sure if I should just run it from bootcamp or not. I do play games occasionally to moderately. If I do run windows XP from bootcamp how big should my partition be? And should I make it FAT32 if its under 32 gigs? Are there advantages to NOT running it from bootcamp that would be worthwhile? I mainly want to install windows because of video calling through MSN (don't want to use anything else), Microsoft Office and games.
