I downloaded: debian-7.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386.iso After trying to install Debian, I think but not sure my problem was installing a 64-bit client. I'm not sure VirtualPC will handle 64-bit clients. Anyway after reading a few post through the forum, I think I should start with Ubuntu. After downloading Ubuntu and trying to get VirtualPC to mount the ISO, it errors out before it even starts. Something about "Segmentation Fault". Is this due to allowing VirtualPC to create the partition? Do I need to format the partition to a different file system before trying to install Ubuntu? I was hoping Ubuntu would format the partition for me. As it is I have no clue what partition type to use.
