if you don't know what it is, why are you asking about it?

i assume you're talking about this? http://petruska.stardock.net/software/VMware/index.html

well, the purpose is that i want to learn linux, without installing it over my windows xp. I tried vmplayer but as you might know i can not save files and shutdown linux as it is going to be lost.

so i tried searching for a virtual hard drive and sombody suggested this, but i am not sure if he was right or wrong about it.

btw that website you gave i have already looked at it before but it doesnt mention the purpose of vmxbuilder....

thanks

VMX Builder is an application for creating vmx (VMware virtual machine configuration) and vmdk (VMware virtual hard disk) files.
seems pretty clear to me... what else do you want to know?
