A reviewer discusses how he used Virtual PC for Windows to
install OpenBSD and Mandrake Linux 8:
"Since I'd planned to upgrade this particular to Win Me
anyway, I nuked the real PC drive's contents, performed a clean
install of Win Me, and then installed VPC again. I then downloaded
the Mandrake 8.0 ISO images, mounted the images directly in
VPC--something that I cannot do in the current version of VPC for
Mac--and installed the OS. Just like with OpenBSD 2.9, nothing
untoward happened, the install completed successfully, and the
Linux 'guest' OS appears happy in its new home."
"Virtual PC for Windows is going to rock the worlds of IT
professionals as well as anyone with a use for running multiple
OSes simultaneously. It takes a little while to wrap one's brain
around the idea of using Virtual PC, but the convenience of
creating a new virtual PC to try something out, makes Virtual PC
for Windows well worth investigating more closely."
