wow, i can't believe i waited so long to get into using parallels for Mac. the other day, i installed Windows XP using my Virtual PC image on my G5. right now i am surfing in firefox on Ubuntu (linux) and this thing is zooming. i always wanted to fiddle with ubuntu, but i didn't want to install it on a computer if i didn't really have a use for it. but, with parallels i can just fiddle and it's pretty cool. ubuntu has brought linux a long way from the last time i fiddled with a linux build. very impressive.<br><br>
maybe your name, "sean" was tainted and potentially your mother (and other family members) knows you post on these forums as "sean." perhaps your beliefs would shock your mother who is an ultra christian conservative. perhaps she doesn't know how to search for back posts, but has a link to the forum and might actually open a sean post??? you sure wouldn't want your mother to know your inner thinking . . . and, it's not because you hide it from her; rather, you just choose not to share this to keep her from having a heart attack**. <br><br>**note, i am sure you'd talk to your mother about the things you say here, but you'd rather not have her read things here without being able to engage in a dialog with her.<br><br>
Sounds like this mysterious "sean" is pretty sure his mom won't recognize him by his avatar. <br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]Just push play ~ They're gonna bleep it anyway ~ </font color=blue><br><br>

i'll bet he's pretty certain his mother won't visit and probably wouldn't click on a random thread anyway as she's not too tech savvy, but just in case he's not making it super easy. you'd have to ask sea . . . er topper. <br><br>
Hey, I fooled everybody with my username change awhile back. Nobody knows I'm really me. I don't want to say too much about it, though. I'd hate to blow my cover.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]Just push play ~ They're gonna bleep it anyway ~ </font color=blue><br><br>

i took my virtual PC installation from my G5 and found a particular file (the actual windows part) and copied it and placed it wherever i wanted on my Macbook. so you could place it on your participation, i'd guess. in the new Parallels, you can mix it all together so i am sure you can just put things on the participation for windows and be all set.<br><br>

I essentially had my Windows XP installation in an 8GB file which acted as a VM Hard Disk Image recognised by Parallels. Alternatively you could use an actual partition which you may have set-up with BootCamp as the installation you wish to use. Once you have Parallels/Windows running you can drag and drop from within the window to your desktop or other location (and vice-versa).<br><br>

Yeah, I snagged it already from the site - got an old copy of Windows around here somewhere...<br><br>I'm going to wipe my MBP when Leopard comes out anyway, so now would be a good time to play & mess around with stuff I can always delete later anyway...<br><br><br>
