Virtualization software allows multiple operating systems to run simultaneously on the same computer. Such software systems for <acronym>PC</acronym>s often involve a host operating system which runs the virtualization software and supports any number of guest operating systems.
The difference between a host operating system and a guest operating system.

FreeBSD as a Guest on <application>Parallels</application> for <trademark class="registered">Mac OS</trademark> X
<application>Parallels Desktop</application> for <trademark class="registered">Mac</trademark> is a commercial software product available for <trademark class="registered">Intel</trademark> based <trademark class="registered">Apple</trademark> <trademark class="registered">Mac</trademark> computers running <trademark class="registered">Mac OS</trademark> 10.4.6 or higher. FreeBSD is a fully supported guest operating system. Once <application>Parallels</application> has been installed on <trademark class="registered">Mac OS</trademark> X, the user must configure a virtual machine and then install the desired guest operating system.
Installing FreeBSD on Parallels/<trademark class="registered">Mac OS</trademark> X
The first step in installing FreeBSD on <application>Parallels</application> is to create a new virtual machine for installing FreeBSD. Select <guimenuitem>FreeBSD</guimenuitem> as the <guimenu>Guest OS Type</guimenu> when prompted:
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd1' md5='__failed__'
Choose a reasonable amount of disk and memory depending on the plans for this virtual FreeBSD instance. 4GB of disk space and 512MB of RAM work well for most uses of FreeBSD under <application>Parallels</application>:
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd2' md5='__failed__'
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd3' md5='__failed__'
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd4' md5='__failed__'
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd5' md5='__failed__'
Select the type of networking and a network interface:
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd6' md5='__failed__'
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd7' md5='__failed__'
Save and finish the configuration:
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd8' md5='__failed__'
_ external ref='virtualization/parallels-freebsd9' md5='__failed__'
After the FreeBSD virtual machine has been created, FreeBSD can be installed on it. This is best done with an official FreeBSD <acronym>CD</acronym>/<acronym>DVD</acronym> or with an <acronym>ISO</acronym> image downloaded from an official <acronym>FTP</acronym> site. Copy the appropriate <acronym>ISO</acronym> image to the local <trademark class="registered">Mac</trademark> filesystem or insert a <acronym>CD</acronym>/<acronym>DVD</acronym> in the <trademark class="registered">Mac</trademark>'s <acronym>CD-ROM</acronym> drive. Click on the disc icon in the bottom right corner of the FreeBSD <application>Parallels</application> window. This will bring up a window that can be used to associate the <acronym>CD-ROM</acronym> drive in the virtual machine with the <acronym>ISO</acronym> file on disk or with the real <acronym>CD-ROM</acronym> drive.
