Calling all Linux Guru's!!
Firstly I am very new to Linux, so please bear with me. I am a windows .NET developer and need help to set up my perfect environment which I see as follows:
I would like to take my PC and install a VERY small linux (just the absolute bear minimal to boot up). Once booted up, it will start VirtualBox VM where I can install various versions of WinXP to do my development. Basically, each WinXP VM will be a configuration for each of my clients, which i can start as needed.
So, I would like someone to help me walk thro this project to see if it can work. I already started looking at DSL, which is getting there but way more than I need from Linux. Like I said, I just need the bare core (kernal?) to boot up with and start the VirtualBox application UI so I can choose which guest OS to start. But my knowledge of Linux is the square root of sod all, and at best I've played with (and installed) Ubuntu. I am also keen to learn Linux as I go along... who knows, maybe one day I will ditch windohs alltogether, but until then, it helps me pay the bills :oops:
