The latest version of VirtualPC is well worth it and works extremely well
with my Me, XP, BeOS and SuSE Linux OS'. Loads of memory is a must; I have
768MB SDRAM and that works a treat. I wouldn't recommend using resource
eaters like Photoshop and such while running it because that isn't really
purpose and doesn't work all that well either, but seeing as you said its
testing purposes - its a great tool for that.
