Linux in Windows. (Or Windows in Linux, for that matter...)

Clicky

A technique using a legal hack of VMware player to run linux on any i86 machine.

I installed Ubuntu, but I only have 256megs of ram, so it ran really, really slowly.

I recently received LXF78 and tried out the VMware Player and the "Browser Appliance" that was included on the DVD. Then after going to the link gunny provided I tried the hack provided there and ran a couple of mini LiveDistros,Damn Small Linux and Grafpup successfully too.
