I just purchased and installed VMWare Fusion. After going through the whole installation questionnaire thing, it prompts me to insert Windows disc. I put in Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition V.2002.

The installation process just loops itself over and over. Is this due to the older version CD or am I doing something wrong?

Not a 100 % sure about VM Ware, but Boot Camp requires atleast XP SP2 to be able to install XP on Boot Camp..
Have u checked VM Ware requirements?

Your XP home edition is not sp2.

From VMWares site.

Supported 32 bit guest operating systems.
Windows XP (Professional SP2, Home Edition SP2)

If you have a PC with a cd burner you could download sp2 and slipstream it into that build. The process is well documented, it's easy to find if you google "slipstream sp2"
