  1. Virtual box is definitely the best. Virtual PC 2007 could not install openSUSE 11. In Virtual Box it runs great. The only flaw I have found so far is that the "virtual" video card does not accept 24bit but that's minor because the view is fine.
  2. This can only be accomplished by using Windows Vista or MS Windows Server 2008 1. Load an elevated command prompt (Start menu-> all programs -> accessories -> right click on “Command Prompt” and click on “Run as Administrator”). 2. Type in “diskpart” and hit Enter. 3. Next type each the follow commands in respective order at the “DISKPART>” command prompts. Note - this assumes that disk 2 is the USB flash drive (as it was on my system). You will need to replace the “2” in “select disk 2” with the disk number of your USB flash drive. list disk select disk 2 clean create partition primary select partition 1 active format fs=fat32 assign exit
