Check out coLinux. I use it to run Debian Linux in a window under Win2k. X apps work (although slowly) via VNC.

I want to know one thing. Using a virtual machine we can run an operating system. but how does one install some software on it or save the file made in an emulated environment ? people who have worked on emulated environments kindly share your experiences on these.

thanks

build up a ftp server in windows, u can transfer files from virtual machine to ur server, u should set different IP for ur virtual machine ofcouse.

coLinux+Debian has full network access, so http, ftp, etc all work, including the Debian package download/install mechanism.

Also, I "mounted" one of my Windows shared folders into /mnt. Now both OS's have easy access to a common directory.

Re: unix on windows machine

Hello,

I think it is not a good idea to run Unix on Windows. You know that Windows is not stable. And UNix, however, is a more stable platform. Running Unix on Windows will lost the biggest benefit of Unix.

Re: unix on windows machine

You could install Unix application in the VM environmen. The file you generate in the VM is not accessble to the Windows directly. I am not sure whether it is possible to acees the file through the samba. However, you could put the file into a network driver and let Windwos to access the network driver.

Re: unix on windows machine

hi
if u don't already know you can have both systems installed on ur PC, with the help of a bootloader, an attitude i recommend for you...

however you could use CYGWIN from redhat, which emulates fast enough, well the fastest windows permits, but it sacrifices some features, generally you should't use in apps related to security

there's aslo line it's still new, and VMware which emulates the whole PC it functions fairly well but consumes resources of course, and there are MINGW and MSYS of gnu but little tedious to install, and many of which parts are included in CYGWIN

unix on windows machine

Hi
if you want to use Unix like Os on your PC, and to use windows os at the same time then you can either install a "virtual machine" on windows as the guys suggested (like vmware or virtual PC), or you can "dual boot" both windows and linux (or Unix).

Some Linux distributions had a bootable ability, I mean that you can startup ur PC with them without installing the OS (like knoppix and damn small linux ), you need just to put the cd on ur drive and restart your machine to get your PC working using Linux os.

Also what is better is to install the both OSs (windows and Linux) in your PC, its very simple to do this, just go and do some search on google to get the full details about this issue

My system has 1GB memory. Do you think it's enough to run MS Virtual PC?

Thanks.

Re: unix on windows machine

Due to Windows defaults, CoLinux can only be full networked (or networked at all) if ethernet is active on Windows (ie, connected). If not, you can not see even your own Windows from Linux, nor Linux from Windows.</p>



CoLinux has has a practical limit of 82Mb RAM, due to Windows faults. Apart that, it is an excellent product to run servers like Apache (RAM is an obstacle here if you load it too much).</p>



Quack</p>

Added after 2 minutes:

A word of warning about Virtual PC. Beware! It is a Micro**soft product. Isn't M*S fighting Linux? So why in the world should it allow Linux to run on their OS with their virtual machine, if not to show, by failing, well, that Linux is unstable, etc?
