Windows 7: how copy XP?

how copy XP?

Two questions really:

First -- how do I use copies of my XP instance?

Do I just copy the "Windows XP Mode base.vhd" to another file and then set up a new instance of VPC using the vhd file as the hard drive? (It's been awhile since I used VPC 2007, but seems like that's how it was done there.)

Second -- does the integration not support drag-and-drop? The only way I was able to copy a file into Virtual XP was to open the primary hard drive from within the My Computer folder.

Thank you. I followed the instructions in the tutorial you wrote, but now there is no icon in Program Files for the new instance of Virtual XP. Is this normal or have I missed something?

thanks,
Tom
