Moving from bootcamp to parallels virtual disk

    Hey all, I'm running parallels 3 (build 4128) on a macbook Pro with a 100GB internal drive and a 200GB external drive (an OWC firewire 800 drive). Currently, this drive is divided in two; half for MacOS and half for a bootcamp pertition. I'd like to reclaim the bootcamp half for MacOS by moving the windows disk onto a virtual disk on an external drive (I don't use windows as much as I used to). What's the easiest way to achieve this, given that the parallels transporter doesn't directly support this sort of move?

    I've seen some very hacky (and I mean that in a nice way) instructions for this, but they seem to have been written for an older version of Parallels. Has anyone tried these with Parallels 3?
