    Testing Environment with Virtual PC

    Hello all;
    Hope I can get a bit of feedback.
    I need to put together a testing environment for testing our websites with Firefox (old and newest), IE 5, IE 6, IE 7. The OS's to test on are Vista, XP.
    My plan is to use the Microsoft Virtual PC and use ghost images for the various OS's.
    Does anyone have any experience with this?
    Any feedback--link to tutorial or other info is greatly welcome.

    Thank you.

    Yeah, I use VMWare but the concepts are the same. It is pretty easy, if you can install an OS on your computer, you can setup a VM machine.

    You just configure the machine and then load the disc in for the OS you want to install and then install it. The OS on the guest machine doesn't have any knowledge that it is just running on a virtual machine.
