im failing to see what your asking about and what your trying to do. perhaps a little more explanation, both in what your trying to do and your exact hardware, and we will go from there.

How many cores do you have? You should have at least two if you want to do that.
You can definitely run a virtual PC, but I'd stay away from Vista. As long as you are not running something intensive (which will be pretty much anything other than day-to-day surfing/word processing), you should be OK.
To compare, I have 4 cores with 4GB RAM with XP installed on VMWare, and I have never noticed any slowness at all. Granted, I seldom do anything more than surfing/word processing on this machine.
