Re: Setting up a VM to run an F12 guest on an XP host



Why do not ask your admin to install VirtualBox for you so you  can install F12 on as a virtual machine if you have enough RAM (2GB - 1GB for XP, one for F12) ;)

You don't install F12 from within XP so as long as you can boot from a
CD/DVD this won't be an issue.  Just boot from a F12 LiveCD and the
installer should sort it all out for you - this is called "Dual Boot",
each time the computer starts you have the choice to run F12 or
Windows XP (one will be set as a default and you will have 10 seconds
to make a decision when the screen comes up).
