Hello, i run 9.2 mandrake download edition, question is, i wanna run my windows using like vmware etc, but i wana find a tutorial or whatever, vmwares page has no like newbie friendly info, any help guys?
I am using Win4Lin and it was vary easy to install. The only drawback is that it will not handle DirectX, so games that use it will not work. I have played with Transgaming's Winex, but found it's performace to be rather slow, but it has gotten better with each each release.
Tring to use just Wine to install/run most new M$ software probiblt will not work, Transgaming lisened Installshield code to help with installing M$ games.
Keep in mind that vmware will run MUCH slower than your actual computer.
For example, I run vmware on my laptop (P333 192 Megs of RAM) so I can run Magic The Gathering...and it runs about like a p166 with 64 Megs of Ram...or maybe a 133. Which is acceptable since Magic is an old game....but if you're thinking running the latest wizbang FP shooter with DirectX9 and stuff...forget it.

I do not see a way to contact you otherwise, so here I am:
