I'm going to do this on Scientific Linux Fermi 6.2 once I get it in the mail. First day I played with Virtualbox. I also have the Windows 7 version of Virtual Box so I can run Linux Mint on Windows 7. Virtual Box is free. Virtual Box is supposed to be better than Microsoft Virtual PC. I am using the wrong operating system, because Cent OS won't see my Windows partition files. I should be using Scientific linux Fermi instead. My Fermi 6.2 hasn't come in the mail.
