    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone was familiar with virtual machines enough to tell me if this is a good idea or not. I wasn to use either vmware or microsoft's free product to put linux/Smoothwall and XP PRo/IIS on the same physical box. Is this a bad idea? Any tips would be appreciated.

    Just remember they will be emulated as 2 different machines than the one your currently running them on but yes the software setup should work.
