Setting up a test network

I want to setup a test lab here at work for Call Manager, Sub and Pub. I have several Compaq Deskpros 1.8GHz with 512 megs of ram. I know this is a little low on the spec but again this is only for testing. When I try to install call manager I get an message box that states I am not using Cisco approved hardware and the install ends. Is there a way to use the equipment I have? Does Cisco have watered down version of CM for test enviroments? Is there an install switch that will just install the software regardless of the hardware?

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered.

Re: Setting up a test network

Take a look at the following link. If you scroll down on the main page, you will see a link to instructions for installing CCM on non-Cisco approved hardware. Definitely not recommended for a production environment, but it will do the job for testing.

Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.
