    Thats quiete funny that you can get use that to create images yourself. Ive always been a fan of VMware for testing. I did my whole NT 4 to 2003 in VMware and have done other various projects testing using it to. I havent needed it too often so I have used the 30 day trial but if you can get round this player then great .

    Thats what I have used it for as well. The ability to discard changes by reverting to snapshot is great. Only problem is if you machine is part of the domain your time end up out of sync. I usually
    Take the snapshot while Im logged on.
    Have a bat file on the desktop to sync time using net time.
    Lock the computer then unlock to renew your credentials.
    Then your off again

    I have read that VMware is supposed to do hardware emulation from an image but I dont think this works on the basic work station editions.
    A vm machine can be set to sit on the network just like a normal PC or just interact with its host etc etc.

    Might be good to create a little samba VM for people to look at Geoff depending on size it would compress to etc and someone hosting it ofc. If its feasable a few little ones could be created showing of Danguardian etc.

    Yeah Power isn't supported to well atm IIRC. The cracked Mac OS X x86 binaries would probably work fine though.

    Re: vmware player anyone treid this

    You just need to make sure you have specified use a floppy take a lokk at that file generator I mentioned above and you will se mention of a floppy. It should accept a physical disk or an image depending on how you set it.
    You can also make this a little easier as well by downloading the full Workstation version on 30 day trial and build machnes a little easier with that. That way you can still use them in the player once the trial is up.
