This seemed to be the best category for my query. Anyway:
I'd like to set up a small home network and install Windows Server 2008 as a virtual HD. I want to install it on my machine that's already running Windows 7 and I understand I can still do this without blowing away the current OS.
BUT - how do I do this? what are the steps, what else do I need (Virtual PC, perhaps?). What should I expect when installing it? I've been told that I need to copy the files from the disk to my C Drive. Is this true?
Please talk to me like I'm 5, I'd really like to get this on my machine and practice using it, as I am currently an IT student.
