Editorial Reviews

Detailed instructions tell how to get the most out of VMware Workstation, a product that allows multiple operating systems to run simultaneously on one computer. Each chapter begins with a hands-on, step-by-step guide to one component of the software, then shifts into reference-style documentation. Coverage encompasses installation, configuration and operation, Windows guest systems, Linux guest operating systems, FreeBSD guest systems and other guest operating systems, host and guest system network configuration, network services, non-networked file transfer, and troubleshooting. Ward has written other books on computing. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
