This was EXACTLY why I purchased VMWare. Then I installed EVERY M$ o/s I had,
and followed that with the *nix's I wanted to play with. Last count was 14
o/s running in VMWare under Debian. And yes Virginia, it IS worth it!! :--)
Though! I have been told that the newest Wine is supposed to handle Q & QB
rather nicely. (shrug)
