Default Re: dualboot

The idea of the Virtual PC is to load another OS while you have one version of Windows already running through a virtual environment. DOSBox works very much along the same lines where you can take an old 8bit dos game and run it on a Vista machine.

That was something to hear the original 8bit Duke Nukem through 5.1 speakers rather then the one on the board.

Here's a screen shot from Nukem 2 on Vista using DOSBox. http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/2...ns64bitaf3.jpg
