    Installing SQL 2005

    I would like to install SQL 2005 on a VMWare virtual Server. I'm looking for
    step-by-step instructions because I'm at this. Hope some one can help.

    Possibly, either in an SQL2005 forum or in a VMWare community....
    But you have posted into a newsgroup for Microsoft Virtual PC, which
    is not at all discussing VMWare Server issues!

    1) You're in the wrong newsgroup - this one, as its name suggests, is for
    Microsoft Virtual PC.

    2) You install SQL Server 2005 on a virtual machine in *exactly* the same
    way as you install it on a physical machine - there is no difference...

    I am trying to install SQL Server 2005 on XP Pro running in a Virtual PC environment. I however, run into and error that states that it cannot be installed into an encrypted or compressed hard disk. How do I change this? Thanks.
