  I have been running a linux server for many years now. I have tried a few different flavors and I am trying out new ones all the time. Lately, I have been playing the .iso's in virtual machines. I have even run this server in a virtual machine and it runs well. I use a script for the .iso's that creates a vmware vmx file and runs it when you drag and drop an .iso onto it.

PlayISO.vbs script text follows just in case you are unable to download/run vbs files:


' How To Use:
' Drag and drop a bootable .iso image file onto this script.
' This script will write a vmx file and open it in VMware
' (the system default app) using the newly created file.

' This way, you can drop a bunch of .iso's into a directory and drag,drop them to open them up.
' I intended everything to be in the same directory, slight modifications could be made 
'  if this assumption is not adhered to.

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
myfulladdy = objArgs(0)
myfilename = myfile(myfulladdy)
mybasedir = mybase(myfulladdy)

mynewfilename = mybasedir & "PlayISO.vmx"
