    I have set up my partition on Boot Camp running Windows XP Professional SP2. The mouse and keyboard work when I run windows in Boot Camp.

    Now I am trying to boot from the partition in the parallels window, and it starts up fine, but I have no control over the mouse or keyboard.

    Any suggestions on what I can do to fix this?

    With Fusion you need to install VMware Tools for full capabilities
    I'm not sure if Parallels has an equivalent or not

    Parallels does have an equivalent, but you shouldn't need it to run the mouse and keyboard. What model Mac and kind of keyboard and mouse OP?
