Question Windows XP Help

Hello there,

Is it possible to have 2 copies of WinXP on one computer on different partitions?

The reason I want to do this is because I have a home network and I want to use seperate systems for home and office.

Thank you in advance

Cheers,
BEEF

hmmm... what you need my friend is an emulator. there's one called VMWare. basically, you can run other OS on top of OS. my laptop runs XP and Linux Redhat 8.0 on top of it. or u can do it vice versa; windows on top of linux. or win2k on top of XP.

or you could Try using Microsoft Virtual PC 2004, its good.....hope that helps.
