you can install cygwin on you computer, it is a good unix/linux simulator and free.

Dear Friend,

Ru satisfied with the answers or not? Using all these virtual machines ur system will get slow, unless u have a large RAM for ur system. Better use it as a dual booting system. then it will be ok. otherwise increase ur RAM.

regards,
raghunath chouta

With regards to the RAM situation, normal windows distributions (Win XP, Vista,..) cannot use more than 2.5-3GB worth of RAM. On the other hand any linux distro will correctly handle all of the available system RAM.
As such I would recommend running windows in linux rather than the other way round.

Cheers

Yes, VMware is a good choise.
But actually I'm facing some difficulties to switch from windows to VMware. Is there a solution to share the files between windows and Linux ?
