Multiple Users on Mac with Fusion & XP Home Edition

Hi

I am a new owner of a MacBook Pro and today successfully installed Fusion and Windows XP Home Edition on the Mac. It was quite easy.

My son and daughter are also set up as users on the Mac and want to be able to do things in Windows as well. My question is: do I have to install Windows XP again for each of them, or is there a way they can access the OS from their user profile and I can create a virtual machine for them that way?

Any suggestions much appreciated!

The AppleCare rep I spoke with did not have an answer for me and told me it was a Fusion issue.

Accessing a VM from different user accounts[/url] - be sure to understand that only one person can use the guest at a time, and Fast User switching doesn't count.

Note that depending on your Windows license, it's probably not OK to have more than one install.
