Linux Embedded in Windows

By fugeeo ·
Anyone have experience installing a linux system inside a windows system. I am aware of colinux, and topologilinux. I tried to install topologilinux, but I am very much an amateur, and I could not get it to install correctly on my laptop.

But are there better systems like this?
What does such an installation entail? Generally, I don't really understand what is happening in an OS installation.

VMWare will allow you to install any OS onto a Windows-based OS.

Please tell me what the following means? It doesn't appear to mention Windows? I want to begin with windows, and install linux on top...

The address contains the following clip from the site you posted:

Virtual Machine Center

VMTN's collection of pre-built virtual machines from industry-leading ISV partners, open source partners and the VMware community simplifies software packaging, distribution, and deployment. Instead of spending time installing and configuring applications, developers and QA teams and other technologists can now focus their efforts on their work.

To get started, download any of the pre-built virtual machines, containing the application software pre-installed and configured. Then, download and install the free VMware Player, and run the virtual machine in VMware Player. You may also run the virtual machines in VMware Workstation, GSX Server or ESX Server.

install vmware.
run vmware
install linux into the virtual pc it created.

or conversely, get the linux version of vmware and install windows into a virtual pc on a linux box.

or add a second version of windows to your pc.

only thing with the virtual machine method, you need lots and lots of ram.
