Options:
- Buy a WinXP box ... set it up ...
- Somehow get it up & running on my LAMP server

option 2 seems like a trial & error and a hassle, but interesting to find out if it can work.

Pat > are you listening in? What are your thoughts?

Regardless of which way you go you'll need another Windows install (the licensing costs are a royal pain). You have a couple of choices:

1 - Set up another PC
2 - Run VMWare server on your LAMP box and install inside of there (would take some pretty significant testing to make sure the results are reliable)
3 - Set up a VMWare ESXi server and run both the IE7 and IE8 testers on VM's (would require some testing but I have done a bunch of testing with ESXi and it is reliable).
4 - Find a cloud provider that has a presence in the Netherlands
