    Does anyone know if RedHat Linux is supported as a guest
    OS in VPC?

  3. If your operating system of choice has drivers of the emulated hardware\
    that the Virtual PC 2004 system presents then it may be possible to install
    and run that OS.
    We (Microsoft) do not provide Support for those operating systems outside of
    those we Support on Virtual PC 2004.
    There is probably a good chance that your OS of choice may install on a
    Virtual PC. It is ultimately just like installing to any other PC - as long
    as your OS supports the hardware you should be good to go.

    VPC supports RH, but Microsoft does not. If you need tech support you
    need to call RH

    Red Hat will not support it either - virtual machines (VMWare too) aren't on
    the hardware compatibility list.
