Q

Can I have two instances of Windows Server 2003 running on one machine?

How can I install two instances of Windows 2003 Server on one box and give access to both servers for my users? I am trying to configure the Development/Test server in one box.
In order to have two instances of Windows Server 2003 running on a single machine, you'll need to use some flavor of virtualization, using Virtual PC, Virtual Server or VMWare. This will allow you to have multiple instances of the OS running simultaneously on a single piece of hardware.
