As you will realize, I want to install Windows XP on this virtual machine. This sounds like an unbelievably stupid question - I suppose I just want reassurance - when do I actually install Windows XP? (I wish I had a list of instructions to work my way through instead of just getting a new screen every time I click OK or Continue.)
When I have (as I presume I will do) used my Windows XP installation disk (which includes Service Pack 2) to install windows XP via an external CD drive, I will be able in the same way to install some of Office 2003, will I? (I only want two programs: Outlook and Outlook Express, so that I can still access my old emails). I also want to be able to install Publisher 2010. (I know of someone who is successfully running Publisher 2010 in all the same circumstances as mine.)
I think this all sounds very silly, but I have really said it all when I say I have cold feet!
