Virtual Server R2 SP1 Beta 2 runs fine on Vista RC1 (build 5600) with IIS 7

If anyone is thinking of installing Vista, but would like to still be able to use Virtual Server, I can confirm that Virtual Server R2 SP1 Beta 2 runs great on the RC1 build under IIS 7.  I am running on a dual-core AMD x64, and it currently only has 1GB of RAM while I wait for an upgrade to arrive.  This is a great way to use Vista, but maintain assured compatability with existing solutions/software via virtual machines.

Virtual Server R2 authentication prompt and error
The last two times that I have installed Virtual Server R2, it has been SP1 Beta 1 and then Beta 2.  Each time the install was simple, but when I first attempted to navigate to the Admin homepage, I recieved a login prompt.  Very frustrating, to say the least.  Each time I have resolved it by Googling and it was a pain to find the (simple) answer.  The answer is easy: Add the address of the panel to your "Intranet Zone" in IE.  This is an IE issue, not a Virtual Server issue from what I can tell.  Here is the link that helped me out and that explains the problem.  I am putting this blog out here so that when I look for it again, it will be right here waiting for me.
