    I successfully installed windows XP sp3 via Boot Camp and then tried to turn the partition into a virtual machine via Parallels, everything was Ok until I installed Parallels Tools, right at the end of installing tools it just sits there with the progress bar full and nothing happening for an hour, Parallels won't let me quit, if I select the force quit window nothing untoward shows up like app not responding, should I retry creating a new virtual machine, will I do any damage if I do, any ideas or suggestions before I force quit Parallels.

    How much ram to run Parallels & Vista?

    I have a MBP with 4 gigs ram, and tried the shareware version, but it seemed the ram was maxed out. was that my imagination?
