Great topic, thank you very much. I've tried both Boot camp and Parallels. Of course Boot camp is much better since as you said, it has full access to your Mac's hardware, doesn't only use 512 MB of the RAM like Parallels does. The disadvantage is switching between both operating systems, have to restart and stuff. Plus, I think I can use the FAT32 to install Windows XP Service Pack 3, but I guess I can not do so on Vista, haven't tried though. That's why I used some software I downloaded from Apple the other day, which gives me the priviliges/permissions of not only reading the Windows volume while on Macintosh OSX, but also writing. So, I guess I just listed some of the pros and cons I came up with, too obvious already though.
