Some weeke ago, I meet my friend with a macbook pro, He can change desktop with a button on keyborad. Change from Leopard Desktop to Windows Xp Desktop. I don't remember the name of program He used.

(I think was Parallels ). For download to ed2k I use Emule, because Amule is too slow with my ADSL for some filter on the line, installed by the Owner of the line.But in Linux Ubuntu I use Wine and Emule, and I download and upload fast....I like install parallel, but when I try, i recive an error:

You can't install on this computer.

I try to click -> system preferences -> Boot Camp ( Is it like Parallels ?? )


But I recive another error message:

You upgrade bios from firmware.

And I can't install too.


I try to search in google, but I don't find a guide for See the HD2 with Linux Ubuntu in my Leopard.

Can you help me?
