I've been reading for some time about VMWare, Wine, Qemu, Bochs and some others, but I'm still not sure which one would (best) fit my needs: I've got a dual boot and I would like to make use of existing Windows (XP) installation, not having to create a new virtual disk/system and install everything from scratch. Can I use existing Windows installation with some of the existing "emulation" software ??
you didn't mention whether you're using NTFS or not on the windows-partition, if you do use NTFS then you already have a problem because you can't write to that partition by default (not sure how far the rw-development is on FreeBSD) vmware server gives you the possibility to use "raw partitions", i've tried that with a linux-partition on an external disc within vmware wine is also a possibility, but wine will by default let you start only 1 app, YMMV last time i tried qemu it didn't support "raw partition" access afair if i were you i would use vmware-server and do a fresh install, easiest and safest _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
