How do you install Boot Camp AFTER parallels?

    I installed parallels directly because I had no intention of using Boot Camp. Then I found out that my killer graphics card is being limited to 64 MB of memory. Naughty - you should have told us.

    Now I want to use the full power of my brand new Mac Pro. How do I proceed? There is mention in the manual of running Boot Camp as a VM. I't pretty sure I don't want to do this.

    Do I just go over to the mac side and install Boot Camp? Will this create two WinXP operating systems on the same disk? This seems wasteful. Is there a way that the parallels VM and Boot Camp can share the same installation of WinXP, or am I asking for trouble?

    I avoided bootcamp because two years ago it was in unsupported beta

    If you are a gamer you may need it
    otherwise first read the cries of pain on these forums :-(
