Default Re: Cool, i'm running Linux inside windows

I think you can also run Ubuntu in Windows using these downloads from the link below. Select the Live one. I'm going to use the 64-bit PC (AMD64) live CD image:

http://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso/5.10/

I'm going to try it out.

TCW2, how do i get unbuntu to run, did not see a distro that had embedded in it...
It is fine to boot linux and still have windows on the hard drive. Live cd's just use ram to store the OS while u run it off the cd. They are very safe.
Instructions to run different distros of linux are discribed here http://crmaykish.cr.funpic.org/artic...ndows-qemu.php
You have to download qemu itself then copy the iso image of the live cd of Ubuntu described in the link.

Isn't that kind of like putting a Porsche engine inside a Yugo body?
