    How to install a Linux on my Windows Vista laptop?


    Hi

    I have a 64bit Windows Vista at home. Now I want to run Linux on it. I don't want dual boot so l am looking at VMWare Player, with a pre-loaded Linux OS. Some post pointing me to this "Virtual Appliance Marketplace", but which Linux should I use? Is this a good one? I just want to host simple applications such as CVS and Subversion.
    Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server | Virtual Appliance Marketplace

    Thanks.

    Personally, I steer clear of VMWare and Virtual PC. I would use something like Sun's VirtualBox. It's free, and I've never had any issues with it.

    As far as which Linux to use, that's entirely up to you.

    I agree, I would stay away from VMWare, VirtualBox is great and gets the job done right on.

    i would disagree,
    I would actually install kubuntu or ubuntu and partition the harddrive

    therefore you can boot either one
