Recently Debian-based distributions have been making the headlines these past few months (i.e. Ubuntu, MEPIS, Linspire, Xandros) and taking away some of the glory from its root source, so I decided to see if I had the chops to figure out how to take a stock Debian desktop install and tweak it to function on par or better than the competition. Proudly, I can report, I have accomplished what I have set out to do and now have a solid workhorse multimedia PC that has made me a convert.

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install the free VMware Server (version 1.0) on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake). VMware has just released version 1.0 of its free VMware Server. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems ("virtual machines") such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system. This has the benefit that you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money, and you can move virtual machines from one VMware Server to the next one (or to a system that has the VMware Player which is also free). In this article we use Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake) as the host operating system.
