VPC-Win 5.2 Tech Ref v1.3(RARed PDF or ZIPped PDF)*
Its full of relevant info for VPC, while I wrote it for 5.2, a huge amount
of it is directly, or almost directly usable with VPC2004. Please
note that some modification necessary to use guides for VPC2004, for
example, VPC2004 does not create pre-formatted disk images so you must
pre-format a Win9x/DOS VHD before you can install the OS.
Compare my Differencing Disk
diagram (p18 in the TechRef) to the one in the Virtual Server Admin's guide
(under Using Diff. Disks). (My original Word doc of this was
created Dec 10, 2002 ;-) )
Windows 98 Ready VM for
VPC7, similar to the one for VPC200x above. You
need a Windows 98 CD and license to finish the install (The VM is
configured to boot to C:, and has CD-ROM drivers already loaded for a
pain-free Windows 98 install) This won't work with the Win98 included
with older versions of VPC.
NW6.5, you don't need to modify the DC21X4 Driver files in the unsupdrv
folder on the cd-rom, it was done by Novell, but apparently you need to do
a manual installation and allow unsupported drivers to be installed.
