        As far as I know, it's not that easy to run Linux guests with VirtualPC. I tried RedHat, Mandrake and Debian (some time ago, so where older versions) and it worked, but I think in this case will be better to go for SUN xVM...

          When I run xVM i get a nice BSoD, error 00000007e or 00000007f.

          The 3rd app that crashes Vista.running Everest leads to a blue screen, setfsb and now xVM.

          I love Vista.
