MOSS 2007 - Installation guide using VPC

Given the limited resources for MOSS 2007 and the lack of MSDN and nights of googling around, I have compiled the complete guide that provides information on team environment development of MOSS 2007 sites, assemblies, artifacts and step by step installation of MOSS 2007 and related IDE's on a VPC for a standalone PC. At the end you will have a vhd file which you can circulate amongst your team and presto they will have a fully loaded MOSS2007 developer environment suitable for development and/or for demonstration.

Some of the areas that have been covered are
• installing, configuring and setting up the moss software setup.
• host demonstration machine system requirements
• moss 2007 virtual pc setup guide
• virtual pc creation
