so I installed virtual pc for mac. afterwards, I picked the os to be installed. I wanted to save windows files to an external hard drive, so I changed the location from... documents/virtual pc list/windows xp. to my external drive. and when windows started installing. when it questions to partition on c: I choose not to erase, and create seperate partition. everything went ok. but then what I get is a alias in documents/virtual pc list/windows xp and the get info for that alias says the original is my external drive. but in my external drive, theirs nothing there??? so I did a get info on external drive and it says formated fat32. but no visible signs of windows anything in it. so my question is, where did virtual pc save windows xp? I would like to save windows files. and added windows programs on that external drive. Thank you all for your input.
