So, finally that step is done. Here is what I have done:

- installed a German XP Home in a KVM virtual machine
- installed VS2008

Then the tricky part begins. On a German XP the home directory looks like
"C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\...". My first naive try was to create a 
subdirectory there and nmake && nmake test. But then nmake test gives you a 
lot of errors of the type "program C:\Dokumente not found".

So, there are 2 points that I have found:

- don't use vista, haven't tried win7
- don't use directory names with blanks
