Desktops I own(ed)

When my dad bought me my first computer back in 2003 it was a basic setup which costed around 21k, it has AMD 3000+ processor, 512 RAM, e-Sys Motherboard (with only one PCI express slot), 80GB hard drive and a 14 inch CRT monitor. It is really an outdated one in comparison to today's specs, but I made the most of it.

How to create a virtual LAN of 3 clients and 1 server in VMware # Part1: Installing/Configuring a Guest VM

Often you need a LAN environment to practice your Microsoft/Linux server or Networking concepts, setting up a physical LAN environment is not practical for learning in most cases.

Thanks to Virtualization.

I am going to show you how to configure a Virtual LAN consisting of a Windows Server 2003 and three Windows 2000 Clients in VMWare, I am good at VMWare, I find it extremely reliable especially in case of Network configuration, I had problems with the same in VirtualBox.
