I'm being locked into Windows because of the difficulty of installing/running other software. I live in a very rural area, and finding clear documentation for the novice is difficult. Some applications will only work in the Windows enviroment. Since I own several licenses to Windows, that is not the problem.
The biggest obstacle I have is, after loading Fedora Core 5 and VMware Workstation 5.5, I cannot find or execute VMware to load a Windows VM inside of Linux.
Okay. What Desktop Manager are you using? Fedora Core 5 lets you pick between K Desktop Environment and GNOME.
With either one, the VMware Workstation installation should create a shortcut icon in your system menu. If for some reason that failed, you should be able to open up a terminal and type "vmware &" to launch the workstation application.
