Can the VPN Client run in a Windows XP VM

My company isn't (yet) supporting the Cisco VPN client for Windows Vista. Since my home Windows XP computer has just crashed, I need to by a new computer - and most come now with Vista preinstalled - so I need to know whether I have to set up a dual boot PC (One partition with Vista, one with XP) or whether I can create a XP VM within Vista, and run the Cisco VPN XP client in that VM

Cisco VPN client will run on Windows vista as long it is a 32bit platform.

You can also virtualize XP to run off Vista as well as run Cisco VPN client off it , but keep in mind VMware or virtual PC apps do requires good amount of RAM to run smoothly.

Partitioning for dual boot is feasable but is more administrative work to go back and forth between the two OS's.

I would suggest if you intend to get Vista 32bit is to simply use Cisco VPN client for Vista.
