  1. Hi everyone

    I am running a 2 year old DELL Inspiron 6000 with XP Pro SP2. I wanted to use some sort of virtualization to setup Ubuntu 6.10 on my laptop, and a couple of people on other TechSpot forums suggested VMWare.

    How can I go about setting up VMWare (Server?, Workstation?, Player?) and loading Ubuntu (or another Linux distro) in the VM?

    A detailed walkthrough would be great, since this is my primary computer and I won't take any chances unless I can follow some expert advice.
