    VMWare / Booting into VM

    I have VMWare VMServer installed on top of Ubuntu 7.10

    I want to create a XP VM but here is my question:

    After I create a XP VM with VMServer, how do I make it so when I boot up the VMServer it boots into the XP VM and not ubuntu?

    Question make sense?

    You use the vmware console... the one that you used to create the vm.

    Yeah I know I can do that, but what if I want to boot into the VM from the host machine?

    Like the Host OS boots up and then I want it to boot right into the VM after it finishes booting the host OS. Is that possible?
