    =/ kinda what i dreaded. i needa find a trial copy of windows is what i'm getting from that. i guess i'll get to it eventually. and then it's only a 30 day trial so if i ever need to do it again i'm basically screwed. thanks for the link. i guess i'll do it the one time and deal with it a different way later on if i ever have to.

    I have a mac book pro and found that the dual partition was the best option. Luckily I had a buddy that had an XP pc he was trashing and got the code from them. You could ask around. Good luck man, it's not easy for us mac guys...

    Don't use the virtual, actually partiton you HDD. It will work fine. :)

    I have some other issues with my mac too. Some zip files I download on the mac side don't work. I use the mac side for research and the XP for actual downloads and installs.
