It's pretty straightforward. Note that you can use Parallels to access a pre-existing Boot Camp partition, but you don't have to. In fact, it's preferable in many ways just to use a normal virtual machine (that uses a dynamic virtual hard drive).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
