    finally, i installed parallels desktop .4.0 ( windows xp), and I also installed antivirus( symantec) for my xp. Is it necessary to install anti-virus on Mac system as well, with windows xp as my guest system?

    No, a/v software on the Windows guest will be sufficient. Mac OS is not affected by Windows viruses.
