    I am using a 2.16ghz MacBook Pro with 2gb RAM with Parallels 3.0 (4128) running WinXP Pro sp2. If I set up a BootCamp install can I open it in Parallels, VMWare Fusion (not at the same time) and boot into BootCamp? Would there be any issues with this? It would be awesome to keep all my options open.

    Provided you don't use them at the same time there shouldn't be a problem. I flip between them regularly. The only issue I've encountered is an error on boot with Fusion when it tries to initialize some of the vmware tools. Just disable their automatic startup.
