    I'm back

    A gap, mostly down to my swapping the hardware, and spending ages on installing, re-installing and configuring machines.

    I now have a brand new (QA's, I must add) HP6120, with all the spec necessary to run VMWare workstation 5, with RHEL4, Fedora 4, Solaris 10 and SuSE 9.3 running withing it.

    Quite impressive! Of those listed above, Solaris 10 is having the greatest problems. Mostly because there isn't yet vmware-tools program for Solaris, which means that things like screen resolution, cut and paste and sharing directories with other virtual machines is at best limited, at worst non-existent.

    But very impressive otherwise. The 2Gig RAM is a must for this kind of configuration, and with it you can have all guests open and running.

    Good stuff!
