Vista Virtual Machine

I finally had enough of trying to run Word 2007 on Wine.  It worked several times, but every time I really needed to use it, it would fail to start.  It would just hang on the splash screen.  Even more annoying was that the splash screen stayed on top obstructing my view of other windows.

So, I installed Vista as a virtual machine.  It works relatively well.  Here are a few links I found helpful in the process.
