"In today's world of Information Technology it is almost
impossible to to work exclusively with only one operating system.
That being the case the folks at VMware, Inc. dove in and developed
VMware; a friendly, robust, and affordable Virtual Machine. A
virtual machine in this instance is software installed on a host
operating system that creates a virtual X86 computer and runs a
number of guest operating systems. Here's the cool part, no dual
booting! That's right for those of us who choose (or are forced) to
run one or more operating systems VMware saves us from the
frustration of having a workstation cluttered with multiple
computers or having to dual boot constantly."
"I recently installed VMware 2.0.3 on a Red Hat 7.0 machine
using RPM (there are also compressed tar archive available) to
install the binaries. After successfully installing the binaries I
proceeded to run the install script, which must be run as super
user and from inside a console."
"VMware boasts a number of innovative features. Anything you
do on a separate computer, you can just about do using a virtual
machine. You can share files, surf the internet, run business
applications, develop programs just to name a few. You have a
choice of running the Virtual Machine in its own window or in
full-screen mode, cut and paste between the virtual machines and
the host, use suspend and instant restore, enjoy full multimedia
(except 3D), even use and even use an external zip drive."
