Running a Bootcamp installation of Windows XP on Parallels?

I've been trying to find a way to run my Bootcamp installation of WinXP using Parallels. I would like to continue using Windows from booting up if I intend to use it for a longer period of time, but there are times when I'm working with OS X and I want to use Windows just for something quick. How can I use my existing Bootcamp installation through Parallels?

Open Parallels, click File => New.
* Select Custom
* Choose the correct OS type (XP)
* Set amount of RAM to use
* Select 'Use Boot Camp'
...the rest is self-explanatory.
