centos5 virtualization


After installing CenOS 5.1 i have got an option in the system tab named 'Virtual Machine Manager'. With this i have got an option to create new virtual machine. But i failed for lack of knowledge about it. If anybody can help me with some detail information about it, then it will be a great help for me.


Thnks
Rizvi

Thank you Dudydoo, for your quick response. The link was very helpful for me, but still am confused abt certain things, like -
[1] while locating installation media can i locate a .iso file or .nrg file? actually am looking for some detail about locating installation media.

[2] Is it possible to install Windows XP as a virtual machine using the VMM ? If not then which Operating Systems are supported to be virtualized?


Thanks
Rizvi

If you are creating a fully-virtualized quest, then you can install from an ISO image, but not NRG.

You can install Windows XP if you are using hardware virtualization (fully-virtualization). Of course, your CPU must have the feature.

What CPU do you have?
