    Ubuntu Command-Line open VMWare on boot

    Hi

    First of all, greatings everyone, as this is my first post.

    Second, i have a serie of questions for the one that answer me:

    1- Imagine i want a minimal ubuntu distribution, that boots in command line. Is this possible? How to do it?

    2- Imagine that i want my "minimal command-line Buntu" to start VMWare/VirtualBox on start-up. Is this possible? How to do it?

    3- Imagine that i want my "virtualbox minimal command-line Buntu" to load-n-start an virtualized operating system on the fly. Is this possible? How to do it?

    Thanks in advance,

    prof2004
