Just installed VirtualBox and it does have snaphots but not so extensive
as VMware. In VMware I have some W2K snapshots:
- SP4 + Windows Update
I can freely choose which I want to go to. Not so with VirtualBox I'm
afraid as they are all on top of each other.
(I guess for now I keep my other, F10, box around).
