    We have deployed XP to 35 out of 300 of our users and
    would like to be able to provide help desk support
    utilizing our Win2K machines for the rest of this year. I
    have read through all of the discussions and find very
    little if anything XP as a host and the one or two I found
    point to problems doing so. Can you list the problems that
    I will encounter using a Win2k (512mb RAM) machine? Would
    we be better off with XP and running Win2k as the host?
    Thank you!

    Clarification:
    (I haven't found much on "XP as a guest OS" and am needing
    info on how it run under Win2k host). Last question should
    read - Would it be better to run XP as a host and Win2k as
    a guest OS?

    Either way works fine.

    Realize that people don't (normally) post when everything
    is working great.

    I've got a couple XP guests I run a lot...yes, they're licensed
    correctly...with no problems at all.
