installing vmware?
 
hello list,

i bought i laptop with windows xp pre-installed. i shrunk the windows
partition to install my gentoo linux, which is what i normally use. but
the machine is still dual boot.

several years ago (8-9) i tried a 30-days demo version of vmware and it
was quite efficient running windows in a virtual machine under linux.

now i found that there are many ebuilds to install vmware, and i'm a
bit confused:

first, there are many different ebuilds, what do i need to run the
windows xp i have installed in a different partition?

second, vmware is not free in the sense that you have to buy it, what
does the ebuild install? a free version? a demo?

i found a few pages on the net explaining how to install vmware on
gentoo, but i'm not clear about those issues. thanks for any hint.

best,

lj
