You need to compact the VHD to reduce the size of it.
Step 1: Precompact. Mount the precompactor.iso from \program
files\microsoft virtual pc\virtual machine additions, and run it.
Step 2: Compact. Shut down the VM, run the Disk Wizard and compact the VHD.
You can get the detailed steps in the VPC help. Start VPC , go to help, type
"compact" and the first help result will give you step by step instructions
