This is my first time to explore installing Virtual Machine. I have following setup on the above box;
Host OS - Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64

Ubuntu and Vmware server are now running on the box. I'm going to install Slackware i386. Looking on;
- VMTN Technical Papers Directory
I found tons of documents there. and do not know which of them are relevant to my case.
Vmware has technical guide on installing supported OS. Slackware is out of their scope. Googling found me some guides. I haven't got a clear idea which of them shall I follow. Please shed me some light. TIA
