Rebuilding my test systems

Well, I had some issues that kind of trashed my VMWare installation of my test systems, so I decided it was time to rebuild anyway.

Most larger shops have a "lab" that they use to test things. I normally...

use a Virtual Machine for this purpose, since the hardware is expensive. I even have a Virtual Machine test system for home, and I use that to write my articles for InformIT. Even small shops can benefit from a lab.

Well, as I mentioned, it was time to rebuild, so this time (since I was starting over anyway) I decided to use Microsoft's Virtual PC. I've been using VMWare for years, and I'm really comfortable with their solution. But Microsoft has come out with a newer version of the Virtual PC software that they bought some time back, so I thought I'd give that a try. I'll let you know how it works out.
