m3mberman: Chaks you might want to reconsider using Parallels. VMWare fusion is known to perform better than Parallels. They have hardware accelerated graphics support for windows xp sp2 machines and they also alow you to use USB devices with the VMs. Something most other products don't do. It also allows you to use the onboard Boot Camp Partition as well if need be. Not to forget the fact that the same VM can be then used in VMWare Server, Player or Workstation.Fellow MSP from MU,Albany.
