    Hi,

    I want to have a live and test development environment on the same computer.
    For example, I want to run a Whidbey suite (Whidbey, 3rd party alpha-level
    controls, etc.) and production VS 2003 and have them not interfere with each
    other One option is to partition the disk and install two separate copies
    of XP, Office, etc, and then the development environments. I would have to
    reboot systems to change. Are there other options?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Have a look at Microsoft VirtualPC ... its perfect for running beta software
    on without interfering with the main setup.
