Simplest way to get a Virtual Machine

Hi,

For a reason, I need two installs of ClearCase (pointing to different ClearCase servers). I have been given to believe that the ClearCase client (or the administrators in our company) do not allow that. We can only have one or the other.

So, I am contemplating using a virtual machine (e.g., VMWare, VirtualPC) to perform the second install. While that might do the trick, it has overheads for the machine software and switching from one to the other.

Is there a simpler way to achieve the same goal? Could I use some kind of DNS level trick to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Two different user profiles or accounts?

Wouldn't the installer complain of an existing install (registry entries would be in the same place)? Or perhaps, is it possible to instruct the installer to install 'for this user only'?

Totally depends on the software. Many programs keep settings on a per-user basis, but of course many also don't.
