Install VMWare Player in Ubuntu 9




VMware Player allows you to run entire operating systems in a virtual machine, which runs on top of Ubuntu or Windows. To the guest operating system (the one running inside the virtual machine), it appears as though it were running on its own PC. The host operating system runs the VMware Player, which provides the guest with things like network access. VMware Player is available from Ubuntu's Multiverse repository (in 6.06 LTS through 7.04), but is not included in Ubuntu 8.04/8.10. It can be downloaded for free from VMware.

Virtual machines configured with an operating system and applications ready to perform a specific function are called virtual appliances. An appliance can be created using certain VMware products, or you can download ready-made appliances. A wide variety of appliances (both certified and not) are available from VMware's Appliance Marketplace: http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/ source
