Hi Stephen,

I'm using Fusion WITH Bootcamp, so I could boot directly into Windows if I wanted, but prefer the Fusion connection so I can bounce back and forth between XP and OSX. Most of the time I'm using XP to read the California Building Code which doesn't come in a Mac version. I find what I need, copy it, go to my OSX applications and paste the text, and/or graphics (screen shots) where needed. Fusion minimizes to the dock when I go to OSX. Only reason for doing this is that Spotlight doesn't find anything on XP docs. At one point, I tried to transfer the entire code into a Mac doc, but it's just too huge.
