VMWare is cool!

My first implementation of VMWare in a test environment, went quite smooth. I was pleased to see the installer resembled that of RedHat or Fedora. Very comforting, warm, fuzzy feelings came over me as I ran the install script...;)

I installed a Windows 2003 member server, and a Nagios sample image found on the VMWare website. Quite easy to install guest os's and especially the images, as no installation process is needed, just configuring the guest os once the image is deposited and added to the list of guests available to boot. I only wish I could have had a better host, as it was only a dual PIII, with less than a Gb of RAM.
