Please forgive me for this question:
I was asked to provide a PC with 2 sets of keyboard and mouse, 1 for the
primary user to access the "host" PC and the other set to access the
"virtual PC" by other users.
Is this really possible?
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Not with Virtual PC, you need some kind of hardware product that
controls and allows more than one keyboard/mouse combo and software to
host 2 users.

Virtual PC is for 1 users to use more than one OS at a time.

Bill:

This is probably not what you want, but if the computer is on a network, the
virtual machine(or machines) cab be accessed from another physical computer
using Remote Desktop.
