    Hi !!,

    My computer has two hard drives, one houses Ubuntu 7.10, and the other XP SP2. How would I go about using VMware to use WindowsXP while booted in to Ubuntu?. I've read up on how to install VMware, but I dont want to do so if I cant use it to access my XP install on the other hard drive.

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think this is possible.

    Ok, I loaded a copy of XP inside VMware and it went off without a hitch..... I seem to have everything working. I only have one more problem I'd like to resolve. While using WindowsXP inside the VMserver as the guest OS, it will not let me do the windows updates. I get to the windows update site and it appears to be searching for the appropriate updats, then finally I get a screeen saying that windows update can not display the requested page....

    Any ideas on this???

    Did you register your Windows VM with MS?

    Yes its registered. I got it fixed by changing the network settings to share the same connection as the host.

    you can also set up your virtual machine to use the entire physical disk instead of virtual one.
