    If you have a copy of XP VMware Player is a better choice and it's free VMware Virtualization Products for Virtual Servers, Virtual Desktops, and Data Center You can now create VMs on it. I was unimpressed with the beta version of XP Mode. I'm not a fan of the virtual PC MS offer either they were resource hogs. Virtualbox is another free virtual pc but it's a royal pain to network and share on! If you are going to play games on a VM you better have plenty of ram available.
