VMWare is way too resource hungry, unless you've got a damn fast system there.

I used to be running 3 virtual OSes (Win98, Mdk 8.2 and RHL 7.3) just to get the idea what VMWare was all abt. Running all 3 OSes was a nightmare on this slow system of mine.

If you're planning to run Windows w/in Linux, go win4lin, that shuould be a lot faster than VMWare for Linux.
