RE: Virtualization for Beginner



One issue I had when trying Virtualbox is that it required kernel
modules to be installed in the kernel.  This is from memory, but I had
terrible trouble with it on my Linux box, but Vista handled it perfectly
:(

I'm going to be hosing the F9 install that has VB on it and installing
F11 at some point so I'll try VB again then.

Hi Das

I would recommend that you take a look at VirtualBox.  Its very easy to
get started with, without needing to know to much about Virtualization
before-hand.

See http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/End-user_documentation

And Good Luck
