Not sure of your setup obviously but the one peice I'd recommend is using your Dapper as the host OS and running winXP under a VM unless you need gaming or direct hardware support of some sort.

Ideally, I'm loving a win32 partition (30%) and mandriva partition (70%) with my VM hosted from<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/var under Mandriva. Win32 get's a native partition since I need game support else everything requiring windows runs on a VM until I'mm able to replace it.

You'll find a Guest OS on a Windows Host runs slower than a Guest OS on a *nix host; even windows runs better under linux.. bahahaha
