I don't know either. And I did try that, but Virutal Box I couldn't get
it to see the Keypan as a USB device (as of yet anyway). The
windows2000VM does have the drivers.
As for Virtual PC, the 2007 version only works for windows versions up
to XP. Last time I tried (last year) it didn't work for Vista or
windows 7 and you had to upgrade (for a fee) to use it for those
versions. Unless something has changed.
Hmmmmmm just looking at that page says vista is supported
now...interesting. I might give it a shot later. Although I still
would prefer to get virtual box running if possible considering it is
already installed (not to mention open source). Anyway any thoughts are
