VMware Workstation 6.5 consolidates the best of desktop virtualization

If you have the CD or the ISO image of the OS or Linux distro you want to install, Workstation 6.5 will try to install it for you automatically. This auto-install feature, called Easy Install, isn't available for all distros. When you pop in an install CD or point to an ISO that Workstation 6.5 recognizes, it lets you know if it can install it for you. I could find no documented list of operating systems or distros that work with the auto-install feature. http://www.kopy.net The new way to play game, online free games.With this feature, you can "power on" a virtual machine without having to wait for it to download completely. For this to work, the VMs need to be deployed without being compressed in a .zip.
