    so far the emulated Display and sound interfaces are no
    longer be supported by coming OS. However, technical
    support of old OS is terminating. What can I do for the
    Virtual PC 2004?

    Windows Server 2003 and Longhorn do not ship with the driver required by
    the Soundblaster 16 card, however, you can extract the required driver
    from a Windows XP CD and use that.
    As far as display goes on Longhorn, it works fine once you install the
    Additions.
    FWIW, if you actually read the product documentation, neither Windows
    Server 2003 nor Longhorn are supported guests.

    Windows 2003 is one of the options in the drop-down box when creating a
    virtual machine...

    Yes you can choose win2003 from the drop down box, but
    also keep in mind that the OS is NOT supported. What this
    means is that, ALL of the M$ OS's should work fine with no
    problems... except for Win2003 and Longhorne. Your an
    Idiot!

    Both function fine albeit Longhorn is really really slow. Though if you look
    through the documentation of Longhorn and the newsgroups you will see there
    are problems with Sound Cards with W2k3 and above. This is bcecause they
    don't ship with support for ISA cards. You can grab the drivers necessary
    drivers from the xp cd as pointed out .
