VMWare Server is free - as is Virtual PC.
Im quite familiar with both (I prefer VMWare). Ill be more than happy to
help create and maintain such projects around the image.
The problem with VMWare I posted just recently, it boots and I get to a
white screen with a black x which responds to mouse movement, but nothing
ever goes beyond this.
Is there any more information I might be able to glean from it for you?
