Yes, you can run VMWare on k12ltsp, although the FC5 based
versions takes a little tweaking.  It's a reasonable thing
to use for testing incompatible configurations or running
windows and linux on the same box, but seems like overkill
just to run two Linux applications.  Can you explain the
problem you are trying to solve?
