Actually I am thinking of getting it since the price is pretty good. Anyhow here is my issue. I am desperately trying to setup a domain network between two Virtual Machines. One is Server 2003 and the other is XP. Basically for now all I want to do is practice setting up a domain on Server 2003 and then join the domain in XP. Then practice group policy stuff. Here is my dilemma. Been trying for the last 10 days using VM Ware 5.5 (30-day trial) to get this to work and all I have been getting are errors telling me IP addresses are wrong no matter what setting I use or network can't be found, etc.... I DO have a router if that makes a difference. D-link DI-824VUP If I get Paralles, which most likely will, (A) is this easy to setup as I want? And (B) can someone tell me exactly what I need to do to get it working. Think of me as a dummy if you are able to tell me. To me it does not matter if I use a static address or a DHCP as long as this works. For example do I hard code which NIC, etc.... Thanks so much in advance.
