I'm installing Fusion on my father in law's iMac. I'm wondering if it would be better to just create a straight VM or to create a Boot Camp Partition to be used as a VM by Fusion.

He's not a gamer. He will be using XP for Office, Quicken and light Photoshop.

You don't say what the specs are of the iMac. For a machine to run well with Fusion or Parallels it will need more memory and a few more processor cycles to achieve the same performance running natively (e.g. under bootcamp).

Accessing the application under Fusion or Parallels will be a whole lot easier than having to reboot into bootcamp.

I don't have any experience running Fusion/Parallels with under 2Gb Ram. They certainly run ok with 1.8CD & 2Gb Ram on a mini.

Oh, sorry. It's a 2.0 C2D w/ 1GB of RAM (4 GB in the mail, though).

My question, though, wasn't whether Boot Camp was better than Fusion. Fusion allows you to either create a file that acts as a virtual machine or use a Boot Camp partition as a virtual machine.

I was wondering if running a straight Fusion virtual machine would be better than running Fusion using a Boot Camp partition as a virtual machine or vice versa.

I can't answer that. I do have a boot camp partition, but I've never connected it to a VM. I've never noticed an issue with anything that could be attributed to slow disk accesses and never felt disk accesses were slow. My original mini had a 5400RPM WD 160GB disk and I now have a Hitachi 7200RPM 200GB. iMacs have 7200RPM disks, so I can't imagine you'll have a problem.
