I was a Mac convert but have not been on Mac since I was given a PC notebook a couple of years back.

When my PC notebook went dead last week, I went out and got myself a MacBook Pro.

I intend to use it for my work (but my IT guys told me they do not know how to support it since they run a Windows environment.)

Have installed Bootcamp w/ Windows XP Pro and then Parallels. However, IT guys did not allow me to access my network via XP unless I had anti-virus which I later downloaded.

Now the question is - are stuff in WinXP harddisk viewable from both Bootcamp and Parallels ? If yes, how is that I cannot see the anti-virus program which I downloaded into Bootcamp from Parallels?

If it is different, does it mean I would also need to download anti-virus into Parallels ?

Thanks for helping out on my questions as I want to use Mac to access the MS Exchange Service for my work and need to convince my IT guys that they need not worry about me "busting their system".

I think that's the magic of Mac OS, most probably you can find the answers on your own most of the time and fix it. I answered my own question playing with the Mac OS.
