Starting a Virtual Machine on a Linux Host

Starting a Virtual Machine on a Linux Host

  1. Open a terminal window, type vmware & and press Enter.

  2. If the configuration file for the virtual machine you want to use is in the recently used configurations list, select the listing, then click OK.

    If not, select the Open an existing configuration radio button, then click OK. Browse to your virtual machine's directory. Select the .cfg file, then click OK.

    Note: By default, VMware Workstation 3.2 stores virtual machines in <homedir>/vmware/<guestOSname>, where <homedir> is the home directory of the user who is logged on when the virtual machine is created.

  3. Click the Power On button to start the virtual machine.

  4. Click anywhere inside the VMware Workstation window to give the virtual machine control of your mouse and keyboard.

  5. If you need to log on, type in your name and password just as you would on a physical computer.
