Just type 'vmware' in Google. The first hit has everything you need.

For Linux you can download VMware server Product which is free, and you can get it from http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/d...are_server/2_0 .

And if you are planning to make a linux VM on windows then VMware Workstation 7.x is the latest but for that you have to purchase the licences.

I would also like to suggest that instead of VMWare, you might find Oracle's "VirtualBox" easier to use.

Hi, vsyed786 -

I've had a lot of luck with pre-built "Appliances".

For example:
www.thoughtpolice.co.uk/vmware/
<= Just download the (free!) Linux VM, download a (free!) copy of VMWare Player .. and you're done!
