We have an system i 520 with integrated windows server (no harddisk) connected to an NWS via an ixa adapter. I would like to run several virtual servers on this system but have been told that VmWare ESX is not supported on this configuration. Does anybody know if this is possible or if there is any other virtualisation product I could use? Regards Ronin

    Thanks Yasirirfan, I was going to try Virtual Server but while hunting for info I discovered that VMware GSX is supported on our setup and that GSX is now called VMware Server. I will probably go the VMware on our production machine but still plan to have a look at MS Virtual Server and Sun Virtualbox on our DR machine. I have Virtualbox on my linux laptop running XP in seamless mode and and it is great. I still need to use a lot of Windows stuff at work and having a windows taskbar on my linux desktop that runs all my windows apps (full screen, not in a window) makes my work a lot easier as I can run linux and windows apps on the desktop at the same time.
