I would continue my Oracle experiences separately, now that I am getting a new Laptop and would resume my oracle/OWB experiments on that one.
I have this single laptop, on which I have windows xp home and ubuntu feisty fawn both running. (in diff partitions : dual boot). However, with presence of vmware software, I wished to be able to start windows as a virtual machine from the original installation rather than installing a second copy of windows software on the box.
So, I searched net, and posted my question in the vmware forums page. Here is the link to my post in vmware forums. Particularly interesting this link.
Though I have read through the solution, I am not done yet. I plan to do the configuration sometime today evening.. Will update my findings/experiences.
