Running VirtualPC insde a Windows Guest OS

I'm running VMware Workstation on my Linux host, i need to write some howtos on VirtualPC running on Windows7 (that XP Mode thingy) anyhow before i go and install Windows as a dualboot i wonder if it's possible to expose the host CPU Intel VM-T (in my case) to the Guest Windows OS so that VirtualPC will make use of it?

As of right now if i try to run VirtualPC wthin the Guest O/S i get the "no hardware supported detected etc.." that's because it can't find any enabled VM-T/AMD-v Technlogy available on the CPU.

My hardware is fully supported, Intel Core 2 (i make use of the VM-T in VMware with no problems) and also 4gb ram available.

Thanks.

no, with VMware Workstation (as today) you cannot expose the Intel VT/AMD-V technologies from the processor

I believe VirtualBox does

VirtualBox exposes the feature bits to the guest. However, it does not actually implement those features.
