The not so great thing about Virtual PC, in my experience, is that 
it's really unstable. Perhaps the problem is in the systems I've been 
running it on: versions one and two (win 95) on a powermac 9600 256 
mb ram, & versions three and four (win nt and 2k) on a G4 400 356mb. 
I've been buying upgrades for it since version 1, and she's never ran 
stably for more than a couple of days. An actual PC is a whole lot 
less trouble.
