    I searched for this but couldn't find it....

    Like the title says, will Windows XP Pro 32-bit version install on a mac pro under bootcamp and parallels? I already own the 32-bit full version of XP Pro for a future computer to run in bootcamp and was wondering if I would need to buy the 64-bit version as well if I bought a mac pro. Thanks.

    Since the 64-bit version of XP is flaky I wouldn't recommend using it. I think you need to use the 64-bit version of Vista to get all the benefits of the 8 cores and RAM over 4GB. I think. :)
