I have Windows XP installed on  my IMac but can't seem to find it except under VMware and then it has this error message: There is no application set to open the document “Windows XP Professional-s001.vmdk”.  How do I get Windows XP to work?  Should I purchase a whole new Windows pkg?  Also, my computer came with Bootcamp Assistant, so is this as good a partition as vmware?  What does anyone know about the new Windows 8 coming out next week and how it works on a Mac!
