Vp75, it appears that you're a bit confuse and that's ok. I was also confuse when I started to learn about VMware and virtual machines. I encourage you to reread Negrita's article carefully. What ever linux distro you download, you have to use a virtualization software in order to convert it to a virtual machines. Then use the VMware Player to boot-up the linux OS or whatever OS you interested in.
As for the knoppix distro, download the iso image and burned this to a cd. In your burning cd software, make sure to choose the option for burning iso image to a cd. Then use VMware Server or VMX Builder as I mentioned before, to create the virtual machine. This step here is similar to installing a OS on your system but you are doing it virtually. I haven't used knoppix for while but I think this distro does have an option to install it on a hard drive.
After successfully installing knoppix virtually you can add scripts, download applications and configure settings in your virtual machine and this will be saved.
Suse and Knoppix are two different linux distribution, for complete info refer to the following links:
Vp75, if you still having problems in creating and playing virtual machines, I recommend that you check EH-NET forums for any information that will help you on the subject or create a new forum topic so we can address your problems there. I would like to keep this forum topic CEH related ,thanks.
Hi blackazarro ,
Thanks for your reply, as it is about setting up virtual lab iam taking this as a new topic , hope iam in right place now.
blackazarro , i installed knoppix 5.1.0 and downloaded 5.1.0 iso live cd and renamed as per negrita post and able to open knoppix in vmplayer. Iam able to ping both side and i have got the ethernet selection as NAT, Anyway dynamic ipaddress is assigned to virtual pc and am able to ping both the host & guest, but not able to use internet or connect to internet in virtual pc, iam not sure of what setting needs to be done in knoppix.
Also iam not able to save any desktop configuration in virtual pc, does it needs to be with any write permission, bcoz when i tried setting read/write permission i had message saying it should be mounted....! how does virtual pc have space to store scripts...?
Does any one have idea....or clue about it,
