I talked about this before:
On a side note:
There is a programmer on OSX Apps website macosxapps.com - The App is called "GoogleBar" You should contact them and let them know you are interested. It keeps them going! Also look up ShadowGoogle - they are working on a PR version also.
If Google won't do it - someone else will ha!
One thing that I didn't realize when I bought VPC is that XP is to Windows as OSX is to Mac. What I mean is that there are backward compatability issues involved. I wanted to be able to verify designs on a PC with several IE browsers, and I just found out that I can only use IE 6.x+ According to the Connectix moderator I have to buy a pre XP OS to be able to load any browser before 6.0
I am afraid the Connectix moderator is right. XP wont accept anything older than IE 6. I also use VPC on my Mac for quality control with older browser versions of windows. The best performance I got is with win 98. I suggest maxing out Ram if you want to run multiple versions of Windows at once. Otherwise you could be disapointed with the speed.
My G4 single 800 MHz (1,5 megs of ram) runs win 98 as fast a Pentium 3 600 Mhz would do. You wont get better performance from a twin chip with windows.
<edit>Sorry I wrote pentium 5 instead of pentium 3</edit>
