Hi,
I'm a total newbie, and I'd like to know if it's possible to install VL standard or light with vmware player.
If yes, how?  I never worked with VL or vmware player.

Thanks!

I do not believe that you can create new virtual machine with VMWare Player; I believe it can only 'play' existing virtual machines.

However, with Sun VirtualBox (freeware) you can create new virtual machines and install VL (standard or light). There might be a couple pitfalls along the way but AFAIK folks have been able to install VL in VirtualBox with success.

Hope this helps

I use VL with virtualbox all the time.  Works great pretty easy stuff.
I've made a couple tut's if it will help.

This tut used version 2.4x but the steps are the same with the current version.
