internet explorer 9 and 8 - virtual machine

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

1) I'm just wondering if it's possible to install internet explorer 9 and 8 so I can do some testing. I was looking at different virtual machines like virtual box, and vmware. But if I install of them do I need to get another license of windows 7 to install ie9?

2)  Which one is better?

3)  What are the pros and cons of each?

4) What about parallels?

I'm running Vista 32-bit home premium w/ dual core 1.73 and 3 gb ram.
