    I'm using my first MAC, an mini, and trying to install Parallels Desktop 4.0 for the first time. I've installed the software and I was starting to create my virtual PC, but the screen came up with a message telling me it would allocate hard drive space and I got scared and stopped the installation.

    I'm worried about how much hard drive space it's going to take up. I was expecting to be able to tell Parallels to use 20 gigs of my hard drive (or something like that). But the last thing I want is for it to use all of the free hard drive space and then I'm out of luck.

    Can someone help me understand what's going to happen here? I've always been a PC user and since this is my first MAC, I sure don't want to screw it up.

    I could really use some help understanding this some.

    If you want to allocate 20GB, and it's asking you how much to allocate.... why not enter '20GB' ?
