Could be just the fact that it is a demo. I run VMWare with WIN98, 2000, Redhat 9.0 and Lindows 4.5 as workstations, handy when someone phones up and wants help with an o/s. Ive found a 98 workstation handy as I have an Archery Scores softwrae package that will not run under XP and my fellow archers will use me for target practice if I do not record their scores and set their handicaps. Set up of a workstation can be a little fiddly and I've found that the version I have will only recognise drives on the primary ide channel. But everything else seems to ok and quite straight forward.
I have tried a demo version of Virtual PC 2004 from the MS site and gave up after it took over 4 hours to load win 98 and similar timescales for other programs. It was so slow at running applications that I could not justify replacing my second pc with it so gave up and took it off. VMware - never tried that one. (This is on a P4 with 768mb ram - win XP Pro)
