Question How can I run another linux inside fedora?


I have downloaded many linux iso's and I want to try them without installing them or even making a cd. I heard of using it inside my system (fedora 9) by mounting the iso. its called virtualization or running different GUI.
I have no idea how to do, I have just heard that it can be done.
I want to try, Damm small linux, feather linux, and many more and more....

I'd start by installing VirtualBox onto your present system. It's pretty easy after that. Some people use VMware. I have no experience with that.

Open your package manager, install virtualbox, use it. After you have it running ask if you have problems, but it's pretty much straightforward.
