FW: Comments VMWare?
I've used VMWare, Win4Lin, and now, a win2k terminal server. vmware is rock
solid, but a little resource hungry. win4lin is VERY fast, but doesn't yet
provide 'microsoft networking' so you can't log in to an NT domain. A
terminal server is also VERY fast, and gives you access to windows network
Hope this helps.

I use vmware, and love it. There are a number of ways to set it up,
including allocating a chunk of a disk for it to setup a filesystem
on, connecting to a samba server (possibly running on the same
machine, in the 'host' linux OS), or (IIRC) using an existing NT
vmware virtualizes the entire x86 environment. prepare to be amazed
as you boot your guest OS, see the familiar BIOS startup screen and
POST, and have a fully functional NT desktop, all safely contained
within an X Window.
