Setting up small VMware lab - XP Pro Trial?

I'm setting up a simple 1 server/ 1 client lab in VMware. I have downloaded the 180 day trial of Server 2003. I went to get a trial of XP Pro and discovered there was none! From what I can tell, it's been gone for a while now from MS. So, my question is, what do I do? Or better yet, what have all those people who have done this since the trial has disappeared done?

A better solution would be to get a Technet Plus subscription, which gives you access to all MS products without any limitations or restrictions. They're a bit pricey at $349/year ($249/year to renew).
Actually I have a copy of Vista Business that I'm not using. I could put that on my laptop and use that copy of XP Pro for my lab. Hmmmm.....
I did look at the TechNet deal. A little pricey for me right now.
I apologize if this post is inappropriate
