I have tried WMware in Linux and it’s waaay more complicated than it should be. It’s a total geek thing right now(at least in terms of the free version) and i really don’t have time anymore for the geek thing. I’m no willing to install gui on the linux mahcine either as that is jsut too resource intensive simply to waste because i want to run VM. So I am probably going to run server 2k3 64 bit standard to start with as a basic file server. I’m not sure where i’m going to go with this yet but one way or another i’m going to get this lab working..:)
*update* well i have a 2k3 64 bit base server with vmware. The two vm’s are a server 2k3 web edition(for my gaming servers) and a 2k3 standard for iy internal MSSQL server. So far so good..
