    Installing Linux on VmWare

    Hey!
    I tried to install Red Hat and Mandrake Linux on VmWare over Windows XP, but each time it doesn't install giving strange errors.
    Do you know if it's possible to install it over VmWare or we have to install it from scratch?
    Thanks!

    re: Linux as VMWare Guest

    Yes, it is completely and definitely possible. I, and many many other people, run Linux distros as Guest OS's. I run Slackware, Redhat (two different versions), and Gentoo as VMWare Guests.

    What exactly are these "strange errors"?

    Did you search google?

    Cheers,

    I have managed to install Linux as guest OS on Win and viceversa, and both times it went pretty straigh forward. The first thing you definitely must do is tell us exactly what these errors are [I think there is something in the FAQ about it too] A doctor cannot place a diagnostic on a patient if he has no access to the symptoms. Hmm...

    Error

    I've downloaded both RedHat and Mandrake from the web. I don't recall the specific message, but I simply couldn' begin instalation, the CD number 2 was never reconized.
