I use VMware and Linux on my Windows rigs with better results than I get with the Windows SMP client so I figured I would pass on the info a short how to.. Usually nets me an extra 50-75 ppd so it's not much, but every little bit helps and boosts the team..

There is so much more that VMware is capable such as setting up custom virtual machines, to check compatibility of components within an OS. Comes in handy with some Linux Distros, "cough" Gentoo for finding and repairing broken packages without crashing your real install.

Your CPU must be a 64-bit AMD Dual Core or a 64-bit Intel Dual Core or higher with support for Virtualization Technology.

NOTE: Make sure you don't have Winrar or any other program like Winrar associating itself with ISO files.
