i have a G4 533, MacOS9.1, 384megRam
i am considering purchasing virtual PC 4 to run some of my current PC software - so i borrowed a copy from a friend to test capability/stability. I installed Win 98 & Win 2000 (from my PC disks) and both seem to freeze my system & i have to reboot.
Is this a common issue, or just one with the copy i have?

Did you upgrade to VPC 4.0.2 and the 006 Additions?

I have often been curious about virtual PC. I would be interested in hearing how it works out for you.

I've got VPC 4 running on a G4/500 (upgraded YIKES) - the machine has 1 GB of RAM and it works really well. Perception-wise, it feels faster than a PII/400 machine running NT 4.0 SP6, w/ 192 MB RAM. (I allocated VPC 256 MB of RAM)...perfectly usable...
