It creates one file on your hard disk that will be a virtual partition. It uses the amount of space you define to be the size of the partition. So if you create a 2GB virtual drive, a 2GB file will be created on your hard disk. (This may be split into smaller files that add up to 2 GB)
The amount of RAM that the guest OS will use depends on how much you configure it to use. I have a total of 448 MB of RAM, and I give Slackware 192 megs. It works fine. Note that Windows uses memory at the same time as your guest OS.
Thanks for the replies NetRyder.
one more question, the reason i noticed this software is because i saw you can "redefine the hardware" for the OS.
I have a USB modem that Linux cant use, can i trick it to use it thru this software?
That's partly true ... instead of your LAN card showing up as whatever it really is, it will be called "VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter" or your graphics card will be "VMware Virtual Graphics Adapter" etc.
It can't actually emulate hardware that your computer doesn't have though (that would be neat )
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
