I need to configure the development environment in a VM, cloning it in 3-4 copies. I thought to use VMware server on a Windows XP host and to build 3-4 client (scalable dimension). Each machine needs 2 GB Ram and dual core CPU. I'll use this lab in my intranet. Is the VMware license free for this kind of use? And about the hardware requirements of the physical host?

Software/Hardware used:
Windows XP, VMWare

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

VMware ESXi is free. You will need at least 8GB of ram, but I would suggest you get more if you are setting up 4 clients with 2GB of ram each.
