If you run virtual box in linux you will be able to run windozes from your windozes partition. When you set up virtual box, tell it that you will be running hd0 as the virtual drive.

parallels just uses virtual machine technology, same as xen, qemu, vmware, etc. You have to decide what OS you actually want to be running on the hardware, say Ubuntu Linux. Then install qemu and vmware. Use qemu to create the vmware files, then run those files in vmware, then install windoze, or linux, or osX, or whatever in the VM. You could use windows or osx or whatever for your base OS that is actually running on the hardware, but since it's kind of like your foundation, I would think that you would want to use a rock solid OS.

I did this a couple of times, just for the novelty, but it caused problems with virtual network drivers, etc, and I really didn't need to play solitare that much, anyway.

Convert Physical Machines to Virtual Machines in Minutes

VMware Converter can be run on a wide variety of hardware and supports most commonly used versions of the Microsoft Windows operating systems. With this robust, enterprise class migration tool you can:

* Quickly and reliably convert local and remote physical machines into virtual machines without any disruption or downtime.
.
.
.
Choose from two available editions of VMware Converter

VMware Converter Starter is a free download available to everyone. It is an easy to use product for single conversions. VMware Converter Enterprise is a robust, enterprise-class product for managing and automating large scale conversions. Learn more about the two editions.
And for those asking why would you do that... if you have a machine setup and configured the way you like or one that is in a production environment, going through all the work to set it up again, and migrate data is very time consuming..

Just convert the live running machine AS IS to a virtual one.. DONE

LOL, yeah I hear you man. Although Virtual box(under Linux) is a great solution, and in my opinion runs much better than Vmware. But virtual machines in general still utilize too much resources in my opinion unless you are using them for virtual servers exclusively like for web servers and the version that runs on barbones servers. If you must use a Windows workstation for whatever reason, then IMHO Colinux or a variation of it is the way to go for performance and being able to run both OSes simultaneously. You can run a full blown desktop if you like or you can replace the windows shell altogether. But you just run a terminal and launch whatever app you need to run from a full blown linux terminal. It work great! Another option would be just to use Linux as you default workstation and then use a Windows 2003 server with a terminal session for you Windows desktop. This works great too and is my favorite! Again it just depends on what your needs are. If you just need to run one or two apps in Windows, then I would use Wine, Virtual Box or Vmware. If you must use a Windows desktop for the most of you apps then I would use Colinux for you linux or Linux as your main desktop and use terminal session to a Windows server.
