Windows 2008(guest) on Vmware Server Ubuntu (host)
I have downloaded the standard version from here
I have created and 20G disk for it in vmware ( with create new machine)
mounted the iso from the edit vmware machine
and all booted and worked only the network had some issue so i had to fix it
Here is the solution to add network
Iexplorer is insane - the settings don't let you install firefox !
Now you can ditch your windows vista and switch to ubuntu forever
