Wow...virtualpc is ram intesive. I read on MS VPC site that one man had 26 oses on a VPC system!

Well, here is what I basically did so far. I loaded another box with 2kpro for the host, 768m ram, 950 amd, 120g hard drive for plenty of virtual machines. I split the hard drive in three partitions so I could play with my VPC diskpart images.The host pc won't need much if I use my VPC for most of what I am doing. I am really curious as to how Novell and 2k3 will interact through virtual machines.

Created 3 virtual machines (have not loaded each os yet), Server 2003, Novell 5.2, and xp pro. Novell requires a minimum of 256m ram., 128m for server 2003 (I bumped that up to 180), and xp 128m. I have Terminal serviced in to see if I can do the entire thing via my laptop. I already TS my other servers. This ought to be fun! I plan to leave DNS, DHCP, and WINS on my other physical server, that way once I am done, I can just disconnect the VPC system and wipe the drive. That should keep my normal network server safe and operating normally.

I will load the oses and see how it goes. It was a piece of cake to load VPC and much simpler than VMWare, but won't really know until the oses are loaded. Any ideas or advice?

As the saga continues...

The only issue I see is that the running virtual machines combined allocated RAM plus the hosts running needs cannot exceed physical RAM. So if my host (512 Meg RAM) is committed to 150Meg and I have two Windows 2003 Servers at 128 Meg each, I'm okay, but if I launch another one VPC will pause all the machines to launch the third one, because that would put it ove the 512 physical RAM. I will be installing a total of 1 Gig at home soon, but at work I am stuck with 512 Meg.
