Quem and Linux Iso question


First, my question is...

IF I run a Linux ISO within Windows by using QUEM, will I be able to access the hard drive and other hard ware and use this Virtual Linux just like an installed Linux??

I finally found out that I could launch Linux within Windows using Quem, my reference is pendrivelinux.com yet when I tried DamnSmallLinux-embedded, it couldn't access my hard drive and that's also wt was stated in the DSL-wiki, knowing that DSL uses QUEM, so is it the same when using another ISO with QUEM and StartLinux ?

Anyways this is a great news, this way to learn more about Linux without wasting time restarting to switch between Windows and Linux every time i get stuck or mess up something but not accessing the hard ware might be a little limiting.

Hi,

The link should be 'Virtual Machine Emulation Category' and it's 'Qemu'.

I prefer 'VirtualBox' but you can setup as you like. But I find that VirtualBox is easier and better documentation for virtualization.

Yes, you should be able to setup a fixed file virtual disk.
