Na its just not feasable for 1. developpers or 2. support personnel with
time constraints. We are not all dossy lecturers you know ;--)

Its not for everyone I'll admit. At home I use win4lin (ulsterbank thread)

No, not at all, what you need is
1. loads a RAM, not a problem these days
2. Disk space, see 1.
I have a GSX server runnng in the lab, runs on linux, good for setting up
"stuff" like netware, solaris, doze, doze2003, anything x86 you can think
The plan is to have virtual clusters, just awaiting my shiny new EMC box.
The lab admin (a mate) has his finger stuck at the minute. ;--0
