I am a registered VMWare Fusion user on my MacBook Pro, but I had originally not planned to run it on my Mini. Reading this discussion, and wishing I had my MBP with me today on the road for this very purpose, changed my mind. Although I don't have a backup copy of my WinXP virtual machine with me, I went ahead and downloaded an eval copy of Fusion 2.06, installed it without a hitch, and started it right up. Of course, it wants to find my WinXP VM, but we'll see how that runs in a couple of days when I get back home.

Read my Post #5. Fusion installs and runs fine on both a Mini 9 and Mini 10v. Parallels will not install on a Mini 9. I have not tried it on my 10v.

"With Fusion you can import your existing physical machine as a virtual machine into Mac running OSX."
I used VMware's tool to clone my existing XP Home while it was running!, and then imported it into VirtualBox. (Virtualbox now support VMware image format)
I had to edit the xml file to get VirtualBox past the x-VT error, but otherwise it
runs well on my Mini 9 with 2GB of ram. especially with the Guest Extensions loaded, and running in seamless mode.
So.. i didn't bother with dual boot..
