Virtual PC is excellent. I installed Windows 98 within XP and I can now play some old favourite games that will not work on XP.

I found Virtual PC on UTUBE with a demo it was Windows 3.1 so as i have got Windows 3.0 floppys
i just loaded it up and it worked but as Windows 3.0 was not USB aware and no driver for the sound card it was just a fun thing.
