By many the Linux world is regarded as being a scary or
challenging place with tons of poorly engineered terminal commands and
all sorts of difficulties to install and use a Linux distribution. While
this is really not the case with modern day Linux, one of the areas
where Linux has rapidly progressed is in the field of virtualization.
Among the virtualization options are Xen, QEMU, QEMU with KVM, and
VMWare. With Fedora 7 it's so easy to use KVM virtualization that you
can start virtualizing your favorite operating system and
barely even touch the keyboard! In this guide we will tell you how as we
work on virtualizing a battery of operating systems from Microsoft
Windows Vista to Mandrake 9.2.
