Along similar lines, but avoiding the need to re-boot your system just to
run this piece of software (which has additional problems should you want to
use this with some other software you have in XP), would be to run VMWare
(http://www.vmware.com/) which allows you to run older versions of Windows
concurrently with XP. They offer educational/academic pricing, but in the
end it will depend on what is "skyhigh"...
