    No!
    If you mean that you install support for the host hardware inside the
    guest, then it is all wrong!

    The VPC2007 *emulates* a fixed set of hardware including display and
    sound devices that are *not* the same as those on the host. So you
    cannot access these by installing drivers inside the guest.
    Please treat the host and guest as two completely separate PC:s that
    are connected via the network (compare to accessing an XP machine from
    another via Remote Desktop). You would not be able to use the hardware
    on PC #1 from PC #2 no matter what kind of drivers you install on #2.
    Same thing here.
    The VPC 2007 guest is simply a rather limited PC with a bit old
    hardware....

    This isn't technically accurate. Video and sound hardware are
    emulated, not virtualized. Only the CPU is virtualized.

    microsoft.public.virtualpc news group, Bo Berglund
    He meant that for full hardware support you need to install
    Vista as the host, not as a guest.

    Thanks for the correction. Can you say more about the difference between
    "emulation" and "virtualization?"
