[OT] VM conversion WAS: Use of Parallels

I tried running that VM Converter app when booted under Windows, but
it wasn't clear what path I should take. I didn't know where to place
the source VM image. I complained when I tried to do that.

I just did this with VMFusion on a 10.5.8 machine that had WindowsXPSP3
already installed in a Bootcamp partition. Went very smoothly. No
revalidation needed. No image of Windows needed. Some of the instructions
appear to be out of date.
