Try this:

1.Go to and download an evaluation copy of VMware
for Windows.

2. Install VMware, then install a virtual copy of Windows.

3. Start the virtual copy of Windows.

4. When the login comes up, use a screen capture program from
your original Windows installation to capture the window where
the virtual copy is running from.

VMware sets up a virtual machine, meaning that it allows you to
run another operating system in a window of your current
desktop. If you're curious, you can also use VMware to install
another operating system like Linux and play around with it
without going to a lot of trouble to repartition your hard

Two points, however:

1.) You need a reasonably high end machine. I'd suggest 128 megs
of RAM, and at lead a 500 mhz clock speed. VMware needs lots of

2.) At the end of your evaluation period, if you find the
product useful, pay for a permanent license. Don't freeload!
