    I am new to the mac (got my macbook pro two days ago) and I want to run 64 bit windows xp pro. I need this next year because I will be running programs such as autocad and ext. for school. I have a couple questions:

    1. Does 64bit win xp run on vmware fusion 1.1.2 (the copy I have)?

    2. How I configure it so that the fusion runs my bootcamp partition or can I?

    -Thanks!

    1. It will run under 1.1.2 but there are a few problems that VMware is aware of and are apparently trying to fix.

    2. Yes. It will show up as an available virtual machine after you install VMware.
