Re: [Xen-users] vmware inside Xen

It's not possible, at least for now: guest systems (things which run 
on top of Xen) need to be modified. 

The only ways this could work are: 

  1. VMware release a special version of their software which can
     run on Xen; not that likely I'd guess, though obviously up to
  2. You use the new hardware features announced by Intel ("VT-x") or 
     AMD ("Pacifica") to fully virtualize VMware. This will probably 
     work just fine, but you'll need to wait until you can get your 
     hands on the new chips... 

In the meantime, you might try using 'wine' under xenlinux, or else 
trying 'qemu'.
