@ianw1974 Sorry, I tried to post last week, but I guess I'm limited to one post per day?
I was able to get the 8.0 image up and running in a VM. I've never had to emulate a SCSI drive to get an image to work, but it was required, along with loading both ISO files found in the download folder.
I had to start by creating a Virtual Hard Disk (not a Virtual Disk Image), then change the controller in the settings to SCSI BusLogic, start the VM with the Mandrake80-inst.iso, install as far as I could go, then when it prompted for the second disc, I left the VM running, went into the settings, changed the image from xxx-inst.iso to xxx-ext.iso, went back to the still running VM, clicked OK (as if I had just inserted the second disc), and finished the install.
Since I did this last week, I don't remember if it was limited to 32-bit, but I thought it was 64-bit.... Hrmm. Oh, well!
