> Hello all,
> I have a pretty beefy K12LTSP 5EL 64-bit server setup with about 10  
> thin clients attached. This is working fine, but there is one legacy  
> Windows application my users need. I kept a couple of Windows XP  
> installations around which they can use for this application, but I'd  
> like to get rid of those machines. There have been some attempts at  
> getting the application to work under Wine, but no luck so far.
> I'm thinking of setting up a virtual Windows XP machine on the K12LTSP  
> server. The server is a Dell PowerEdge 2900 with a quad-core Intel  
> Xeon E5320 1.86 GHz (which supports Intel's VT virtualization  
> extension) and 4 GB RAM. What virtualization method would people  
> recommend for doing this? KVM, QEMU (+kqemu/qvm86), VirtualBox, VMware  
> Server, Xen? I think Xen is the only method that's available from the  
> K12LTSP/CentOS repositories, right? Plus it's open source. I have used  
> VMware Server on a desktop machine in the past for testing.
> Is anybody else running a virtual Windows installation on K12LTSP? How  
> did you go about this?
> Thanks,
