    Microsoft Virtual PC2004 is now FREE

    I've had it installed on the entire 2000 Family, both XP Home & Pro and 2003 Server. I've had several linux distros as Virtual Machines. Just because they don't support it doens't mean it can't be done.

    how do I set chapters into a DVD I burn

    Added info to original post. It may be that I need a newer version of DVD Builder to do this. Also, is there a program to delete frames, because I just did a test burn and the size is just over a 4.7G dvd. I can probably delete a good 5-7 minutes from the end, but I wouldn't know how to do...

    Virtual Server 2003. Will RDP be accessable?

    I have a linux file and print server at home.
