    thank's for the howto, worked great on my pc.

    Now this might be something everyone else knows, but I didn't. where i tested all installing ubuntu + vmware server on my pc, I tried to do the same on my powerbook G4. It took me the whole day to get the HFS+ partition resized & ubuntu properly installed (yes, newbee) to find out that vmware server doesn't support the G4 processor. So Ubuntu-ppc users, don't be fooled...

    Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it by
    invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl". Do you want this
    program to invoke the command for you now? [yes]

    Your processor does not support the ^cpuid instruction. VMware Server will not
    run on this system.

    Your /proc/cpuinfo is:

    processor : 0
    cpu : 7410, altivec supported
    temperature : 56-58 C (uncalibrated)
    clock : 500.000000MHz

    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    Ok Noob here so please bear with me.

    1. My Ubuntu partition hda7 is about 7.51GB (4.47GB free). I have both root and home on this. The rest of my hdd has (hda1=WinXP, hda5=FAT32, hda6=MEPIS 6, hda8=SWAP, hda9=Kubuntu 6.06). During the VMWare installation, I want to put the Virtual XP on hda7 home directory.

    Q's:
    - What instructions should i type to VMware where to place the new XP: hda7/root/home/user/winxp [I will have to create a folder in home called winxp]??
    - Is this space enough (4.51GB) for basic XP install? Then, I will be installing in this Virtual XP: Office2003 (1G), EndNote (50MB), SAS Statistical Software (700MB), SUN JRE 1.4 (180MB), SPSS statistical software (700MB), others (smaller programs)
    - Now how would be installing all these programs in the Virtual XP? Do I just follow the same procedures as if I were in XP???
    - Once the virtual XP is set up within Ubuntu, and I have launched the VMware window and selected WinXP OS, how does it know it has to boot up? IS this a stupid question? I am assuming that once in VMWare, XP feels and looks like the original XP??? right?

    Thanks I am about to give it a try...wish me luck...! Oh, but first I have to track the stupid XP key ..is it on the OEM dics or should I just flip my laptop and check underneath it???

    Many thanks, Peturr this is very helpful Regards,
    swb

    Great stuff. I just installed VMW and XP on to my hda7 (I allocated 2G only for starters). The basic install took 1.99G. All went effortlessly.

    Just 1 problem. I used the OEM supplied XP CD, and was not asked about the CD key. But the annoying thing is that it keeps pestering me to Activate and when I plugin the key it does not recognize it all. Any way to overcome this.

    I do not have sound: I am assuming we have to install the drivers?? or will it not recognize that?? Do I have to configure thi sin VMWare to tell it what audio devices to check??


    I am wrting this thro IE6..yes, I know. But now I can have my Stats packaes running in Linux and do not have to boot!

    Thanks,

    This is when I run "vmware" I have GCC 3.4 and 4.0 installed could that be the problem?

    Is it possible to use your cd burner in this? I installed Nero 6, but it only shows a virtual device. And is sound possible?

    Ok, hi there.
    2 issues:

    1. How do I get the Activation process bypassed. I have OEM cd. CD key from the COA back of laptop is not accepted. I ecen tried Telephone, but the sweet lady, told me that the installation ID was not valid.
    2. Get sound going. Currently, no sound at all. Device not detected. EDIT: I got this working by goign into vm settings and adding sound card. works fine , though a bit poor sound.
