    There is a PowerPC (Mac) emulator for x86 (Windows) called PearPC, but it's in the early stages of development and is not recommended for production environments. Also, running Mac OS X inside of PearPC is technically a violation of the Mac OS X EULA (End User License Agreement).

    The technical answer is yes. The realistic answer is no.

    Do I understand this? You want to emulate the OS your're already running inside of an emulated environment?

    I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but there has to be an easier way.

    he probably means vpc for pc. its so you can run 95 within xp or whatever combo you want etc. it was around even before microsoft bought it.

    I didn't know there was a virtual PC for the real PC. There's actually a market for that?

    I think that is why microsoft bought it.

    PearPC is probably worth a try.

    I wish Orange Micro was still making PC cards, VPC leaves something to be desired.

    Intel or AMD doesn't have anything fast enough today to make that usable on a Windows PC.

    As far as I know, there's no way to have two instances of Mac OS X running at the same time on the same machine. You can test Windows Server 2003 against Mac OS X by not running VPC in full-screen mode, using the windowed mode instead so you can interact with both operating systems at once.

    i was just curious, because ive worked with windows networks for a few years, and i know you have to log out or restart the client for a lot of server side changes, im not sure how osx would work in those situations. thanks for the help though guys!
