Sometimes you may want to run software without having to use another computer. What you can do is set up a sort of pretend computer or a computer within a computer. This pretend computer is called a virtual machine, because it will be as if you were using birtually another computer. Sometimes I like to play and old mswindows for test some light software development in the virtual machine.

Note. I do recommend a machine of at least 1 gigahertz in speed and at least 512 meg or ram, but more is better so other programs do not feel slighted.

Once you have done this you can go back and in the install cd for Reatos and have Reactos installed more permanently.
Good luck.

Let me know if you have any qiestions..

Step 1: Installing the Virtual Machine Software

You will want to go to the menu (at the top of the screen and choose System > Administration > Synaptic Package manager and click on it.

You will be asked for a password and then you can choose packages. Type in qemu in the quick search box. Then all the packages having to do with qemu will appear.

Choose qemu and qtemu ( you may have to page down on the packages to see it.

Then click on apply. Those items will be installed.

Hint you can also:

sudo apt-get install qemu qtemu

to achieve the same thing.

<p>You should change the title to &quot;Installing QEMU virtual machine to on Debian&quot;. </p><p>Debian, and it's derivatives as Ubuntu, is not equal to Linux, fortunately.</p><p>When you use GUI for managing virtual machines, it makes more sense to use virt-manager. It builds on libvirt, with nice command-line interface virsh, and supports more hypervisors and containers than just QEMU. </p>
<p>You are certainly entitled to your opinion. Nothing will change. About had it with naysayers on instructables. One of the reasons I have not renewed my membership. By the way, I started with Slackware back in the 1990's.</p>
