yes, as far as I know, its possible but I am very sorry that I am yet in learning phase, and can not help you much.

Actually, my requirement was running linux and windows servers on the same hardware, and read in some document that its possible, but unfortunately I didn't success.

I would stick to this thread, so please keep updating this thread about your doing further.

All the best.

Dipesh

Default where are you tim and falko :(

well you can easily install linux on windows, if you want to know i can help you

its easy

just install vmware or virtualbox then create a guest and install linux so easy isn't it.

But am still waiting for someone to answer if we can install Windows inside Linux server

Yes you can. If you need GUI during install, export your display over a SSH session to a local X server (linux, mac, cygwin, etc)

Default another problem

i am on cent os 5.3 with ispconfig 3

http://www.howtoforge.com/vboxheadle...-5.2-server-p2

i am trying to follow these instruction as the link you gave me is for ubuntu, but this one is for centos right?

so i can install it by just replacing virtualbox 2 to 3?

the problem is in that guide you created a user but i am unable to login that user over ssh how to do that.

Regards
