    I'm proof of that. One work trip where I had a lot of time on my hands I setup Windows Server 2003 as the DC, DNS server, web server, SQL server, file server, Exchange server, and Sharepoint Portal server in a virtual machine. The I setup every copy of Windows I could get my hands on in VMs and connected them to the domain. I had Windows 98 SE, Windows 2000 Pro, Windows 2000 Server, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows XP up and running.

    It was pretty easy to setup without really knowing what I was doing. I wasn't really into computers before around 2003, so it was funny to see how networking was really tacked on in Windows 98. NT 4.0 wouldn't install if the VM's HD was more than 4 GB either.

    I have to say, I got a hearty chuckle out of that.

    You mean you didn't install Windows 1.x, 2.x and 3.x WFW - fail!

    Speaking of Windows 1 - 3, I need to look those up on the torrents so I can play around with them in a VM. I've never actually seen Windows 3.0. Did it even support TCP/IP?

    Microsoft officially supported TCP/IP from v3.11 as I recall, there was an extra floppy with it on if needed. Before 3.11, I think you needed to install TCP/IP via a third-party solution.
