Two ways:

1, burn your xp cd to an .iso file, then copy to your laptop. You can use this iso file with vmlite to create a vm.
2, yes, you can create an vm on another pc, then copy the virtual disk file over, and you attach this disk file to your vm on your laptop
You can use export/import from File menu

now got to figure out where (and what) is that vmlite guest additions... and how to get access to network drives and the real C: drive...

is there support for a 1024x600 video mode?

once you install the guest additions, it will support all display resolutions that your host provides.

To install the additions, you can boot your xp vm to safe mode (press F8 at beginning of boot screen), once Windows is running, you can click the top menu, Devices > Install Guest Additions ...

If the setup dialog does not appear, you can manually launch it from CDROM icon inside vm.

Thanks... really...

I was that close to relegating this new Toshiba laptop to the back closet, or trashing Windows 7 and putting XP on it, because so many of my old programs didn't work... really essential ones... so VMLite is going to make a BIG difference for me...
