P90X can also use resistance bands which in my opinion are better than weights.  With a good set you dont even need a pull up bar.  Its true P90X is more of a strength work out coupled with insane yoga and stretches.  Im itching to try insanity.

I've done insanity many times - each one being in VFFs. Since insanity has a ton of jumping and on your feet movements, you're legs and feet will be toast if you aren't used to being in VFFs. Definitely a challenging workout.

Well, this is my first time hearing about Insanity (the workout version anyway).  I'm very intrigued as I'm in the early stages of a general "get fit" mission.  I don't have a bunch of weight to lose, but was lazy for years.  The last few months have seen increasing mileage on the bicycle and now starting to break myself in on the VFF's during the week.

Would you guys who've tried the Insanity workout say that I should develop some more general fitness before looking into this program, or is it "scalable" for one's personal level of fitness/flexibility?  I would love to have a structured and well-rounded routine to keep the ball rolling, but don't want to try too much too soon.  Any thoughts?

I say go for it, and do whatever you are able to do, the next day you can always push your self further.  What I enjoy is that as you go along you really do feel yourself improving as you progress week to week.  You notice you can do more pushups, more jumps, and last longer then you did last time you did a work out.  Since all the excercises in Insanity just involve your body and your own determination/will power to continue, you can go as all out as you want.
