Re: VMWare



IMHO no, there are no such gotchas, other than you may have to deal
with the default RHEL kernel out-of-memory process killer. If you are
hoping to configure VMware Server to use close to all of your physical
memory, you'll have to deal with it. Alternately if you really want a
clean, and also free approach, leave the Linux box alone and use
stand-alone ESX 3i on a separate host. Better VM, and better Linux
left untouched ;)

Ok, too many jobs want it, so I am going to put it on my system. Now, I've done
some research, and what I need to do is not a bare metal install, but rather an
install *over* an existing operating system (Linux, of course).

So, if I d/l the freeware version (VMWare server, I think it is), are there any
gotchas that will toast my system? Are there things I need to watch for, like
"oh, in 5pt type, and written by a lawyer, translated by someone for whom
English is a third language, you need to do this and that first, and then check
this option"?
