I have a new 64bit Win7 machine with an Intel Core i7 2.2ghz processor and 8GB of ram.

I understand I can virtualize an XP desktop, first question is how to set that up. 2nd question is, can I run multiple (2-3) virtual XP instances in parallel and if so will each be able to have it's own IP address so that I can use the 2-3 instances for testing as if they were independent physical boxes?
