The problem is that Microsoft only supports Windows OSes for VirtualPC. You could use VirtualBox which I personally like better than VirtualPC. I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Ubuntu 9.1 running well in VirtualBox.

You could also use the free VMware Player. Both are good choices.

In vBox you can install directly from the .iso - works like a charm and is a lot faster than from CD.

That statement is true for any of the virtualization packages that I have ever used. Virtual PC, virtual box, VMWare Player, server, workstation, ESX, ESXi, etc.

Some of them (VirtualBox for sure) support floppy disk images as well. I installed MS-DOS and additional DOS based software onto a VB VM using images which is also much faster than using a real floppy.

Virtual PC Beta for Ubuntu
Is it possible to use the Virtual PC Beta in 7 for another OS? From my understanding, previous versions of VPC use software virtualisation while this beta uses hardware virtualisation, so it's better for testing other operating systems.
