In installing, I get the message:

"Mac OS Extended volumes (also called HFS Plus) provide the correct permissions support required for Virtual PC. Please re-install Virtual PC onto a Mac OS Extended Volume."

Where can I find step by step instructions how to do that?

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Do not want to discourage you, but VPC 6 is not worth installing. It is too slow to do anything with, extremely unstable and liable to crash at any time. Having gone this path, suggest if you must have Windows OS, look for a cheap laptop, say a Dell Latitude or similar, and avoid all that frustration and heartache.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
QUOTE Thanks
