Re: F10 -- Xen, VirtualBox, or VMWare?



There's no need to get rid of wine, since you're running XP completely seperate of your Linux install. Which virtualisationprogram are you running? I guess you should be able to add another CD/DVD-drive by directory in your virtualisation program.

If both those commands return nothing, you don't have hardware
virtualisation support.

Hope this helps,

Very much, thanks. I tried both grep commands (what I know of hardware would go in a gnat's eye.), got something very like the one above, did "yum install kvm virt-manager," and got both plus ten dependencies.

	Is there a better way to get started than a man page?

Should I be getting rid of wine, or of the wine-install of the programs I have?

Is there a way to get XP off my other hard drive, instead of a CD or DVD?
