Well, since I saw a person who actually installed Windows 2000 in Linux VM Ware and then run the whole OS inside a Linux window, installing and running VS should be cakewalk. Don''t ask me how cause I''m clueless too.

As I understand it, VMWare does a software emulation of the hardware for the system to Windows. For all purposes, Windows is running just as if it was sitting on a computer normally. There isn''t any software emulation of the operating system software itself going on ... because of that there isn''t really any limitation to what you can install on it.

VMWare is a great system... I use it at work all the time, just because I love the stability and general organization of the Linux operating system, but must have Windows installed because of the software our company uses. The only problem I''ve ever had with it is a slight slowdown for hard drive access and such.

Yeah. Correct me if I''m wrong... the hardware it uses is just a software layer which interfaces/redirects to your actual computer hardware. In other words... the VMWare system creates an independent software video card, then draws what is sent to that "virtual" video card that Windows sees onto your actual screen.
