Thanks for you advice, I'm going to explore these options. The main reason I'd like access for XP is iTunes for my iPhone. Seems silly to have 16GB of information repeated for XP & Linux /home.

Video games mostly. But I don't play that often. I've got a computer I'm about to put together as Linux only, so I'm sure I'll start virtualization with it.
