Unhappy odd method of booting linux?????


i have heared and listented to people talk about using windows emulators and rebooting them with the .iso image. i think that u could tri-boot within windows and have the linux OS installed on the emulator so u could access it within windows while online. i think it can be done but im not sure. could anyone run this theory and let me know what they come up with?

What you want can be done with vmware... however.. it is a simplified process...

Install a base OS (linux of course)

You can have multiple vmware sessions runnig on one machine...

so there owuld be no reason to install windows... then install a windows linux emulator to run another sesssion of linux.

if you want another linux os.. you install another linux os via vmware.

I have read about some machines where I work that that run RedHat, NT4, Win98 & DOS all on the smae machine with vmware
