The thing is I'm thinking of installing it, and I'm just wondering how much recourses it will take to run just one more OS.

It creates one file on your hard disk that will be a virtual partition. It uses the amount of space you define to be the size of the partition. So if you create a 2GB virtual drive, a 2GB file will be created on your hard disk. (This may be split into smaller files that add up to 2 GB)

The amount of RAM that the guest OS will use depends on how much you configure it to use. I have a total of 448 MB of RAM, and I give Slackware 192 megs. It works fine. Note that Windows uses memory at the same time as your guest OS.

Lemme know if u have any other questions.

Cheers!

Thanks for the replies NetRyder.
one more question, the reason i noticed this software is because i saw you can "redefine the hardware" for the OS.
I have a USB modem that Linux cant use, can i trick it to use it thru this software?

What i'm talking about is in the demo it says "VirtualPC emulates all hardware including HD's and COM ports" . any truth in it?

That's partly true ... instead of your LAN card showing up as whatever it really is, it will be called "VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter" or your graphics card will be "VMware Virtual Graphics Adapter" etc.

It can't actually emulate hardware that your computer doesn't have though (that would be neat ;))

Cheers!

heh, that will be amuzing, and unrealistic...
I wonder if i can get it make Linux see the Modem...
never know unless i try...
is the installation the same as a normal Linux instal?

Check the online documentation ... the actual installation is pretty much the same, but there's a little bit of stuff u need to do before and after the installation (assuming VPC is similar to VMware)

Cheers!
