Yeah, stop grepping yourself in public.

I'm a real hardhead (no, really?).  Since I didn't know anything about 
Vm Wks or Server, I just followed some directions to get things 
operating under the uber-simple VMplayer.

I have been using Player to run XP forever.  It barely registers on the 
CPU (until XP starts crunching).  Works on all platforms but obviously 
more stable under linux.  Even works on my laptop, where I assign 256M 
to XP and it will run without serious complaint (you'll probably need 
more though).

You can install from a cd or ISO file. Requires qemu or other utility to 
create the `hard drives' and a .vmx (config) file.

Happy to post examples if anybody needs one.
