Unable to Use mouse or keyboard

    I'm trying to run Parallels Desktop 3.0 on a macBook using a BootCamp partition.
    I tried both a USB Mouse and the Trackpad.

    When I start it, it gets stuck at the start screen with a "Please reactivate windows" thing.
    I've tried leaving it alone for 30 minutes to see if it's just taking a while for the mouse to start working, but I've had no luck.

    I figure that I'll stop trying to run it virtually and install WindowsXP onto a virtual disk so I don't mess up the BootCamp installation...

    So I was wondering if there's a way to make the boot camp partition to run okay instead of running with the Parallels configuration since I am unable to get into it from the virtual machine and shutdown correctly.

    Any help or advice is appreciated.
