Ran into a problem. Didn't realize it was a Windows XP upgrade version not a full version. ****!

I thought amazon was pretty cheap, and unlike ebay you know the product key hasn't been used.

I will have to give it a look. I have a lot of Windows programs that I want to still use.

VMWare kicks the crap out of Parellels. I bought both, and let me tell you that VMWare is the clear winner. I mean, that company has been doing OS virtualization forever, they've got a good product for sure.

Plus, VMWare lets you boot up your Bootcamp partition within OS X. This is handy for running a virtual windows when you just need basic apps.... but lets you still reboot natively into Windows if you are trying to do some heavier tasks like gaming.

Well I got lucky. I found an old copy of Windows ME and it did the trick on helping install XP. I'll let you know how it goes.
