Hi Frank,
Yes I have been doing something similar for a long time (and I think I
posted my experiences when I did).  One thing I did different was use
Windows 98.  With windows 98 running in the virutal machine (In my case
I used VirtualPC, I couldn't get Virutal Box to work with windows98) I
didn't even need to change processor settings or use slowdown.exe  Which
by the way, that processor power management setting is in Vista and
above.  So all newer machines should have the function.
