I have a RedHat 7.2 server that was set up by someone else long ago as an e-commerce server. It is still in use for that purpose and I dare not make significant changes to it as my Linux-fu is weak.
But now I want to set up a virtual machine to run under redhat and can't find a source of information. Searches on Google seem to give plenty of info about how to set up a VM under, say, Windows to run Linux in, but not how to set one up in Linux itself.
When I have the VM I shall be running Fedora in it and using its Samba to share directories with Windows 7.
The reason for all this is that the Samba version I'm using (vsn.2.2.3a) is incompatible with Win7 and if I try to update to a version that does work with Win7 (3 or later), I hit a cascade of rpm dependencies that, after a lot of searching, I still don't know how to resolve.
Can anyone give me pointers on where to start please?
