Load test creation is wizard based. When you define your scenario, you select Browser Mix. In th Browser Mix you select all the browsers that are to be use in the load scenario. Basicly after you install the VSTS for testers, there are several browser types that you can choose from. However, this might not be enough.
Considure a situation where some of your users use IE7. By default it is not supported in the Browser Mix. The good news is that you can add, modify or delete browsers from the Browser Mix list. Follow these steps in order to add...

I was trying to customize project portal by dragging the required web parts to the page.As a result I got an error message indicating "An unexpected error has occurred".After some research, I found this Microsoft KB.
It appears that this problem can occur after editing WSS portal or template with FrontPage or some other editor. In our case, we used customized template. After installation of hotfix (no reboot required), problem was gone.
It's a shame this kb is not open to everyone. You need to contact Microsoft to get it, probably because it has not been tested thoroughly enough.
