Linux inside Microsoft Virtual PC

Has anyone here attempted to install Linux inside Microsoft Virtual PC?
I am trying, but the whole thing looks shady.
For every action, there is a delay (unacceptable level) in moving install process. I haven't seen that happen if OS inside were W2k or WXP.

Well, I finally managed to get RH92 to work inside Virtual PC. But it took me at least two hours. Not sure why it should be, considering a fast SATA drive an large RAM.

I am writing this post from inside RH. Glad it works finally.
