    To start off you guys are always so helpful and I really appreciate it.

    Ok I received my Windows XP Pro 32 bit disc today and plan to install tonight.

    I plan on using Fusion and I plan on running autocad and two 3d cabinet design programs.

    Should I use Boot Camp to create my partition and then download Fusion later or should I use Fusion to install Windows? Also if I use Boot Camp and then install Fusion I will have the option to boot into Windows natively at start up if I would like, correct?

    Also I plan on running AutoCad 2000 LT. I have read there are problems with a deactivating serial number. Does anyone have issues with this?

    Reccomendations on amount of hard drive space I should allocate for Windows?

    Thanks again everybody!

    If you plan on using the Windows partition via VMWare and nativity, install it by way of bootcamp. If you plan on just using it via VMWare, just install it using VMWare. AutoCad 2000 will probably run fine under VMWare Fusion, but I really don't know for sure.
