Magnus-

It depends... If you're running Windows XP under the BootCamp option as an alternate operating system on the Mac, with its own partition on the hard drive, yes it should probably work. Switching between Mac OS and Windows XP would require rebooting the machine each time though. You could also try running it via Parallels workstation, and have Windows XP running as a "virtual machine" within Mac OSX, which is going to be slower, but has the advantage of not requiring the machine be re-booted to get to the Raymarine software. The major difference between the two setups, besides the reboot, is whether the device drivers for the Raymarine will be compatible with the OS running... Under BootCamp, I don't think it will really be an issue, since you'll effectively be using a Windows XP/Intel machine....under Parallels, I doubt the drivers will be recognized...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
