    I am currently undergoing a web based course, and they suggested using
    Virtual PC.

    But I need to be able to setup a Workgroup/Domain for many of the lessons
    take place in such an enviroment.

    But when I try to search for Workgroups, it just hangs there, and I get up
    an error saying it cant find any.

    I have installed 2 Virtual PCs, but they cant find eachother. How do I set
    this up?

    Sorry for bad english.

    This really doesn't have a lot to do with VPC. It is basic networking.

    Are the machines in the same network? (In VPC I would set the NIC in
    each vm to Local Only)

    Do the machines have IP addresses in the same IP subnet? (It should work
    by default if the machines are set to get their IP automatically). Then set
    the two machines to be in the same workgroup.
