    Hi,

    I have a friend with an iMac running 10.6.2 with Parallels Desktop 5.
    He turned off the networking in Parallels as a security measure.
    However, he now wants to use the Internet after all (in XP) and asked
    me to help him with it. Since I have not used Parallels, I searched
    the web trying to find something to resolve this but was unable to
    locate anything. Does anyone know of a website that they could
    point me to in order to figure this out? I did try configuring the
    Parallels Desktop Prefs under the Network icon but that didn't do the
    trick either. I set it to DHCP with a range between 1 and 254 and the
    correct subnet mask but I still could not connect with IE to any
    website or even ping from DOS.

    Thanks a bunch,
    Lao-Ming
