    Hi guys,

    Apologies if this has been covered a million times before but a few Q's!

    I only at present have a laptop at home and i'm currently studying to do N+, I wanted to set up a few VM sessions so I can create a network etc but not sure which is the best program to use? Preferably free as I don't have too much cash to be spending on stuff.

    Anyone recommend me a decent set-up that's going to run ok on a laptop etc?

    You should probably look at Virtual PC, if and when you get some money then have a look at VMware Workstation as it's about the best thing out there outside of the pure Server based products.

    I have VMware Player, VirtualBox, and Virtual PC installed on my laptop and they are all free. I only use Virtual PC on a regular basis though VirtualBox looks good I'm just used to using Virtual PC and it works fine.
