Need help with virtualization software... everything...


I need help choosing the best Linux based virtualization software

What i would prefer:
A dedicated virtualization os like xenserver or ESXi (neither of which i could get to work due to 32 bit and some memory error respectively)

My computer:
- 32bit (...... I hate it)
- 1024 mb of ram
- Pentium 4

My goal:
is to virtualize one application several times. (this application runs in wine and only likes to start one of it's self where as i want to run it more than one instance at a time)
With as little "fat" as possible (the whole os itself)

Maybe it would be easier (and more efficient) to find a way to disconnect the instances of wine?

Help me... I have no idea what to do..

It doesn't look like your computer is powerful enough to do real virtualization, so it looks like you're best bet is to set up multiple wine configuration directories. If the program can't open multiple instances of itself, it probably isn't written for that and it isn't a good idea to try to force it.
