    I use my Parallels install for troubleshooting and demo primarily. Some of that is antivirus testing and cleaning, as I tend to do a LOT of that for my users. I would love to use my Parallels install as a 'clean' starting point for a bootable disc image that I could copy or ghost to an external hard drive for use in purging said users' machines of the nasties.

    How can I copy / ghost / clone / image a Parallels VM to a hard drive so that I can accomplish this? I typically clone my Mac customers' drives for backup using CCC, and I teach my clients to use Norton's Ghost (or Acronis or Paragon DBE) for their XP installs. [There are a LOT of XP installs still out there -- and users who'll click on any link just because...]

    Any thoughts or success stories greatly appreciated.
