How to mount a VHD which is on an external USB hard drive

I have Virtual PC 2007 and I have a VHD on my external harddrive. The vhd is from a complete Vista omputer backup. When I follow the wizard it gives me two options both relating to compacting the VHD. Is there anyway I can simply mount it, AS-IS . Not sure if it will matter but, the VHD is 150GB and the temp computer I am currently on only has 23GB of free space which is why I simply want to mount it and use as is.

"If you are running Windows 7 this can be done using Disk Management.

Open Computer Management
Select Disk Management
Right Click on Disk Management
Select Mount a VHD file

However if you are running anything below Windows 7 this is not supported."
