Is it possible to run games on Parallels with any success? Stability issues I guess. Anyone tried this.

I know bootcamp is out there and it works. But My XP is only SP1 and I am not buying a new version ever again. But I have Vista but it wouldnt let me install it. My parttition may have been too small.

Parallels plus games = no go

You don't have to pay for a newer version of XP, it's possible to slipstream SP2 from what I understand... Google it.

Yeah, but it must be done on a Windows machine which I dont have. Just a shot in the dark hoping that it would work.
