No; I've never had the necessary time to spend to get any virtual environment working, and I don't have Virtual PC to try that particular virtual machine environment. I do have a high degree of confidence that, assuming that Linux works at all under Virtual PC, if one were to do what you suggest, it would work exactly as Christian and I are seeing.
PS Having got VPW installed on a Linux box, I finally went two days last week without turning on my Windows machine.
PPS FWIW, the distro I'm using is the official Mandriva 2006
release, with all updates applied. I strongly suspect that the behaviour we're seeing is quite robust, though, and that
any reasonably recent distro (i.e., within the past six months or so) is going to have the same results.
