Linux on Windows Virtual PC

I was wondering if it would be possible to install linux distros via microsoft windows virtual pc. It would be a good way to try out different distros, im not sure if I can though, I boot up slackware but it won't let me access any of my harddrive partitions :/

Yea it's possible, it should work. Virtual PC uses a file to emulate the harddrive in the VM.
