Good Day Folks,

I am in the process of setting up a lab for training purposes (for myself) a windows 2000 server lab to be specific.

I'm setting up 3 systems which would be 2 servers and 1 client machine..

Now the guide that I have recommends the that i use 2000 server on the server machines and 2000 pro on the client machine but i know that 2000 is way old and alot of hardware today isn't compatible and drivers would be hard to find..

My question is, would it be possible to set this up using virtual machines and still be able to replicate whats in the guide so that I could benefit fully from the instructions???

I have attached a pdf of the guide to help you understand what im trying to do..

I see what you're doing

Yes you can virtualise off windows 2000 and windows 2000 server, I think it's service pack 4 that it has to be at as well and then it "Should" work.
