Great info! Thanks for the links. Going to use this approach to testing 
instead. :D

By chance, do you happen to know where I could get a compiled version of 
XP with IE5.5? Or, other versions of the OS (i.e. win2k) with 5.5 / 6.0 
installed? I am willing to pay the $$$$. :)

I guess optimally, it would be cool to have two vpc images... Both XPSP2 
-- one with 5.5 and other with 6.0, and both without the "time bomb" 

Where would I go to download such a thing? Or, do I have to buy a couple 
versions of the OS myself, and generate the images manually?

Hehe, either way, this is great! I have no time to trouble-shoot the 
Tredsoft installs... and I can now see why the VPC route is better anyway.

Thanks Kasimir! I owe you one. :)

Have a great day/night!
