Hi Geraldo,

Not that much of a problem of licenses for myself, but for creating a distributable developer machine :)

Thanks anyway!

Hi!

Yep, you're right, vmware/virtualbox have a pretty much "out-of-box" setup
But i do really enjoy qemu :)

BTW, dunno if it helps but i have a licensed version of windows 98
just the original manual with the serial number, lost the cd
I can send it to you

Also, for windows xp, maybe you could try the reactos http://www.reactos.org/
an opensource implementation of windows based on wine


See Ya!
