I require to run Win XP as a guest OS on Fedora 15.
My set up is :-
H/W: Pentium 4 @ 2GHZ, 2 GB RAM, 140 GB HDD.
S/W: Fedora 15, KDE, QEMU.
I don't know if the CPU has virtualisation support built into it, I suspect not.
So, is it possible to set up some sort of virtual machine on this platform that will run a Win XP iso ?
If so then what virtual machine package can/should I use. Libvirt is installed, populated and updated. I've also installed AQEMU and Qemu Launcher.
Is Qemu a reasonable choice for this platform ? I think I read somewhere that Qemu uses the KVM which in turn requires the presence of virtualisation support built into the CPU.
If this is true then should I use another package, perhaps VirtualBox ?
In general terms, any idea what the performance may(!) be like on this platform ? That is, will it be too slow to be usable, or only just usable ?
I've looked over the articles in LXF 125 (p56-59) & LXF 138 (p96-99) but I did not find them to be of help with this setup. I've also looked on the web but can't find any up-to-date howtos for this platform there either.
If some kind soul knows of a suitable howto for this platform that I've somehow overlooked could you please point me in the direction of it ?
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give with this.
