So some people gave me REP+ for this post and suggested it be made sticky. But I don't know how you go about doing that. Somebody want to give me a hint?

Updated the OP to clarify that "Vanderpool" in the BIOS is virtualization support.

Good guide, but i think most already knew what Virtualization was. We use it all the time folding.

You'd be surprised! Not everyone folds (yet!) and judging from the feedback I've gotten it's helped some people. And I couldn't find any other guide anywhere on OCN that explained what it was and why you might use it outside the context of folding.

Noob Question for ya:

Why would I want to use a Linux Virtualization? Is it just to test the OS out? Let's say I'm browsing the internet using an Ubuntu Virtualization. Will my machine be protected from any windows viruses that I might get in contact with since I'm 'running' Linux?

I guess my main question is does Virtualization offer me the security benefits of Linux under windows? Or is Virtualization just to sample the OS?

If you run a Linux guest on your Windows host, then the Linux guest isn't going to get any viruses, the same as if it was the host OS. Your Windows host is going to get just as many viruses as it otherwise would, primarily with poor browsing habits and no protection.

That is to say, running Linux inside a virtual machine doesn't protect your Windows host from viruses. But you'll be much less likely to get them if you do your web browsing, email, etc., from within the Linux guest, since viruses can't really do anything to Linux.

Now if you go the other way, running Linux on your rig and Windows inside a virtual machine, then the Windows guest can still get viruses, but you can use the virtual machine's snapshot feature to roll it back to a known good state. I didn't really cover this in the OP but you can read about it in the docs. (BTW, it's against the EULA, last time I looked, to use Vista Home Basic or Home Premium in a virtual machine. You have to have Business or Ultimate, and I think they have to be retail, not OEM.)

Wow Someone read the EULA!

I haven't read one since NT 4.0 where it said microshaft wasn't responsible for huclear attacks! Hahahaha!

Ironically, reading the EULA doesn't get you any rep around here, even if the forum is all anti-piracy. Anyway, there's still plenty of insanity in the Microsoft EULAs, if you know where to look.
