Hi,

In my opinion that's the best solution, you make your pc dual boot keeping Vista for when you want/need it and boot into Ubuntu when you want to work on your project.

I suggest you use VMWare server, it's free and is made for the kind of thing you want.

Perform the installation of Ubuntu and then follow the guide I pointed you to.

I'm sure you'll be pleased with the performance when running Linux in comparison with Vista.

Kind regards,

Eric

I will use vista because I have only 20 GB free on harddisk. Besides, the PC is not mine. Mine is a P4 Windows XP. I borrowed this from my cousin and I dont want to mess with it.

Hi,

If it's not your pc then ask your cousin if it's alright to make it a dual boot. If he doesn't want you to, then go with the Wubi installer mentioned earlier. That part can be un-installed like any Windows software.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

Did you download VMWare server for Windows? Since you're using Vista as host you'll need that version and install it. What version did you download, 1 or 2?

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Here's an easy to follow step by step guide for VMWare Server 2 for Vista.

VMWare Server 2 on Vista.

You'll understand that you're pretty much on your own on this one since it has nothing to do with Linux whatsoever but that howto should be easy enough to complete the job.

After installation you can create your first virtual machine and install Ubuntu on it.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

Since you need two Linux machines to work on your project, you need to install a second one too and then follow the steps indicated on the site you posted (IBM).

Kind regards,

Eric

Make sure these machines can ping each other by name. If not, add appropriate entries in /etc/hosts.

how can I do this?

Hi,

Do you have your two virtual machines installed? Are they both started?
If so, then you can check the IP by opening a terminal and typing the command
Code:
ifconfig
to find out the IP address of each machine. Next in the same terminal you type the command:
Code:
ping <ipnumber>
to see if you get a reply from the other machine.

You can open a terminal by going to Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal if I'm not mistaking. It's been a while since I used Ubuntu.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

That's all you need, the two nodes being able to communicate. Now you just have to follow the steps from the site you indicated. Best of luck and remember we'll be here for you when you have a question or problem.

Kind regards,

Eric

How do I install GNU FORTRAN?
I installed GNU C compiler with command sudo apt-get install build-essential

and also:

How can I enter in the root folder so I can do this step:
Quote:
then copy the private key into the file /root/.ssh/identity and the public key into the file /root/.ssh/authorized_keys in all nodes of your cluster.
