I find Parallels very speedy for this genre of programs, certainly comparable to Vmware (and many times faster than Win4lin Pro). I am using it to develop Visual Studio .NET applications with SQL Server 2000 on XP Pro. Plenty speedy for me. Just make sure you have at least 1GB of ram (or more) so you can give at least 512MB to the virtual session.
