    Question JeOS as a Host for VMWare 2.0.1

    I was just trying to improve my home server, and while I was reading to best practices to implement VMWare, I find the JeOS option, it is not clear in any documentation if it is a good thing to put JeOS as the Host OS or it is only useful as the guest sistem for the virtual machines.

    If not, what is a good thing to do, to have Ubuntu 9.04 full server install or just the minimal server install?

    Thanks in advance for the replys.

    JeOS is a guest, not a "bare metal" OS:

    JeOS is a specialised installation of Ubuntu Server Edition with a tuned kernel that only contains the base elements needed to run within a virtualized environment.
    Ubuntu Server Edition JeOS

    Exactly what are you trying to "improve" by using VM's?

    I bought a server a year ago and have installed Ubuntu 8.04 and VMWare 2.0, now I saw that there are new versions of software so I decided to upgrade it, in that process, I realize that there are many things I didn't know. One of them was JeOS.

    If anyone has a good guide with recommendations to install a Ubuntu & VMWare it will be more than appreciated

    VMWare what? VMWare has about a dozen products, each aimed at a different segment of the industry.
    There's information in the Ubuntu Community Documentation about installing VMWare Server and setting up a VM.
