    Hello all,

    I recently obtained a copy of VPC 2004 so that I can develop and test some
    open source technology, without affecting my existing Windows environment.

    I have a SimpleTech SimpleDrive Deluxe device that connects via FireWire and
    has 100 GB of free space available.

    Can I create the virtual hard drive on this external device?

    If so, after I load WinXP Pro and my initial set of files, can I copy this
    virtual hard drive so that I have it as a baseline version? I'd like to
    eliminate re-installing the OS everytime I want a "fresh" copy for testing.

    Thanks, in advance for your replies.
