Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.
Well, I have been looking at trying to get this working a few times now, and I have kept coming back to it in the hope that I can get it working just from a training/testing point of view. So it's nice to see that it has actually been acomplished - and I do have a ThinkPad..  ;-))
I'll let you know how I get on? 
UPDATE: I still haven't had time yet, but my Brother, Martin has confirmed that this works

Guide to installing VMware ESX3 on Workstation 6


This paper illustates how to install and configure VMware ESX3 Server to run within VMware Workstation 6. From this, VirtualCenter, VMotion, HA and DRS features can be configured.

Although performance is significantly reduced from that of a physical server, this type of environment opens considerable possibilities for portable client demonstrations and is excellent for self training and small lab environments.

This paper assumes the reader has good technical knowledge of VMWare Virtual Infrastructure 3. The paper assumes that you know how to install the VirtualCenter2, License Server and Virtual Infrastructure Client.

The hardware used in this whitepaper was an IBM Thinkpad T60P laptop, Core Duo, 3GB memory, 120GB SATA Hard Disk.

Note: Intel CPU(s) on the hardware running Workstation 6 must have the VT technology or the performance of ESX will be very poor.  It is believed that the same applies with AMD chips with AMD-V compatible CPU's being recommended, although it is currently untested by us on this platform.
