ive heard of having a virtual operation system on a computer. where you can log in to a username but once you shut down the computer everything on that username is deleted. but on the administrator or something you can load a virus scanner, firewall, games, other programs, or files you saved from the virtual one. is this true? and how can i do it? or what are the downfalls and what not.

I am not sure but then you have to have it on a removable media like a floppy or CD. I guess you should google it for further information.

While the Microsoft virtual PC does work, many people still prefer vmware for creating virtual space for operating systems.

Im currently using VMWare and Im running Ubuntu 8.04. It works fine right now, excep that I cant get internet and I cant install VMWare Tools to allow the resolution to be bigger inside VMWare. But it runs smoothly.
