fedora7 + MSFT VirtualPC 2007 failed?

心血來潮想看看最近open source OS的進展,
但是一開始就受挫.

symptom:
screen distored after initialization and get into x11 wm.

root cause:
查一下google, 原來是virtual pc vga driver只support 16bit color depth.

solution:
1. find alternative OOS, Suse, Freebsd or OpenBSD or lot of OOS....
2. change Virtual Machine Software.

MSFT VirtualPC 2007 is also free.
VMWare is business software and seems no free edition.

Ha... Open Source is wonderful... there is VirtualBox which can run on Linux, Mac OSX and MSFT Win32 platform.

I can get into Fedora7 now...
