Linux in a Virtual PC Image

I develop Microsoft Windows software during the day (yeah, yeah, I know - really it's not that bad), but I needed to test some open source C++ code and needed to check that it worked on a Linux box, so I had to install Virtual PC RC under Windows 7 and install Ubuntu 9.04 to try it out. Unfortunately I had to add the following string to Virtual PC to get it to boot correctly.

file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu-server.seed initrd=/install/initrd.gz vga=791 noreplace-paravirt
