Hello Alan,

-XP runs as a guest (in VM mode) on the Intel-powered MacBook Pro due  
to a program called Parallels.

-There is only one 'system' involved which is the Mac Book Pro.  It  
is running two O/S's:  10.4, the host and XP the VM guest.

-The PS printer driver is installed under XP.  XP and Frame both see  
this printer.  Apple does not, nor does it need to do so.

Hope this adds clarity to the inquiry.
