    Hello,
    I have one of my Windows XPs from the first batches. It was XP without even SP1. I later slipstreamed SP2 on it. It does not require activation...

    That should work. I know of course you are going to give that up for Vista:D

    ROFL. Yep, I will play with Vista, but I replace a box that was due to be replaced this year, once they announced Vista was coming.

    SOOOOO

    I have downloaded vmware server and have fedora core 6 on it...

    If i make changes in fedora, installing and such, do they get saved when I exit? I downloaded the appliance and just clicked the .vmx to open. How can I save MY changes to this vmx file(s)?

    Thanks!!!

    Hello,
    Files are saved to .vmdk - your virtual hard disk. .vmx is just a configuration file that tells the VM which drivers to load, what devices to connect etc... Files are saved just as you normally work on a PC.
