So, I'm installing Windows XP on my laptop. As a VM. The XP Pro Disk I have is so old, that it doesn't even have service patch 1 on it. So the install has taken a while. 3 reboots later, I'm doing the current security patches. Up to SP3 right now.
Still have to get Anti-virus on it.
It was a useful night. For the most part. I should be able to take what I learned installing VirtualBox on my Sidux (debian based) system, and install it on my CentOS (redhat based) server tomorrow at work.
