I know very little about Windows, so I'm seeking your advice.

I'd like to run F12 on an XP box (so I can get some work done), could
someone point me to the right software. The big problem is that I don't have
admin privs on the XP box so I can't install anything. Is it even possible?

You don't install F12 from within XP so as long as you can boot from a
CD/DVD this won't be an issue.  Just boot from a F12 LiveCD and the
installer should sort it all out for you - this is called "Dual Boot",
each time the computer starts you have the choice to run F12 or
Windows XP (one will be set as a default and you will have 10 seconds
to make a decision when the screen comes up).


Unfortunately, there is an intrusion detection system on the network that keeps me from setting up a dual-boot system. If I boot the F12 live cd, my network connection is disabled and the admins come and beat me about the head. So I think running F12 in a VM is going to be the best I can do.
