hi
i want to run linux under windows xp
ive tried VirtualPC for WinXP/2k 2004 - works, but veeery slow (and too low VRAM - 4MB :O) i dont know how to increase VRAM in VPC
so ive used VMWare Workstation 5 - works better (16MB VRAM) but i want to get more VRAM (to run games, multimedias etc)! i dont know how.
ive searched by google and ive found one position that matches in 80% my problem. "increasing vram: in the console - svga.vram = x (in bytes)"
but nowhere was written where is the console and where ive got to make a change
does any1 know how to increase VRAM in VPC or VMWare (better)
or
is there any linux emulator (hmm not an emulator 'cos i got to run x86 on x86) or (better) x86 emulator for x86 (i want to switch between OSes - Win98/2003/Longhorn but with larger VRAM size - eg. 64MB or better 128MB - i got GFX5200 128MB)

Or, if you have a spare 7GB or so on your disk and can do partitioning, install Linux. The performance ought to be a fair bit better...
