Why don't you go to the news groups for VPC? You would get
more information about VPC there than in this group.

This is posted at:
The Virtual PC application requires a 400 MHz
Pentium-compatible processor (1 GHz is recommended), and
requires approximately 20 MB of disk space. It runs on
Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000 Professional.

Home, but Microsoft does not recommend it or support this
I couldn't find the hardware requirements for VPC 2007, but
I know there is one somewhere.
