    Default Virtual PC installation question

    After several years being away from the Mac world I resently purchased a
    G4 Powerbook. I have a number of Windows applications that I use
    reguarly and have installed Virtual PC V 6 with Windows XP to use them.

    I set up the Mac (running MacOSX V10.2.6) with three accounts: an
    adminstrator account and two user accounts. I installed Virtual PC from
    the adminstrator account like a good little adminstrator. Now I find
    that when users attempt to run Virtual PC it wants to make a new drive
    image with a new install of Windows XP.

    What I want is a single installation of Virtual PC containing the
    Windows XP with multiple user accounts.

    I seem to have missed something along the way. Any ideas/help?

    TIA

    - Bob

    Where is the disk image? Is it in the Application folder? Users will

    Putting the disk image in the Application folder appears to be the
    solution. Now I need to come to terms with OSX's file permissions and
    the scope of what an adminstrator can do (a bit different for an old
    linux user). Thanks for the help
