    First: Installed Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PC's in Parallels. Works great in windowed and full screen. I installed Parallels Tools inside windows to enable Coherence. The button is no longer grayed out on the toolbar, but when I click it, it remains highlighted as though my pointer was still over it, then doesn not go to Coherence mode. Any Ideas?

    I'm also looking for an interesting wallpaper to put on the windows desktop that references the fact that it is on a mac. I've done the googling, jsut seeing what ideas anyone has.

    The default wallpaper that came with Leopard maybe?

    I was thinking something that would be like a merging of os x and windows. I've seen the windows logo superimposed inside the apple logo.

    I jsut had an idea to but the leopard starscape over the rolling hills of XP or XP MCE. Off to photoshop...

    Photoshopped Window's hills over leopard, then pasted sky fromthe XP wallpaper and changed it from Normal to Hard Light in the Layers toolbox.

    Coherence works when using Windows 7, but not windows XP FLP. Makes no sense to me...
