Default Chapter 2 - Create a new virtual machine

In the above section (on page 38) in Step 8 it states that you can resize the disk at any time.  How do you do this, as windows 2003 server, once installed, utilises almost all of the available memory (I used the suggested disk size of 4 GB) and prevents any of the other required software being installed on the virtual machine?

Thank you in advance (and apologies if I've missed something basic).

I had this problem as well. As far as I can tell you can not resize the disk with any tool included with Virtual PC. I had to use a free utility called VHD Resizer. I resized my VHD to 65GB. The VHD grows dynamically up to the specified VHD size so it will not take up 65GB on your system.
