I am completely confused by the links/tutorials/etc. I have found on this forum and elsewhere - there are seemingly hundreds of methods and nowhere explains the advantages/disadvantages. In addition, not a single one specifies Ubuntu 8.04 (even the Ubuntu Wiki) despite the major changes to virtualisation in 8.04.
So, what is the easiest Hardy-"supported" (i.e. intended by developers) method of virtualising for example Fedora or Opensuse? I just want to try other distributions and I don't need 3D or seamless integration or anything - I just want it to be usable enough to get an impression of them.
Feel free to point me at the most appropriate tutorial/post if necessary.
