I have a VMware virtual squid proxy that I want to put on a physical machine.  The physical machine that I have already has the same OS as the virtual.  Can I image the VM and then load that into the physical?  Is there a better way to do this?

I'm not an expert but what exactly is a Squid proxy apart from a large memory cache and configuration files? I'd just (make backups of the originals and) scp/rsync/ftp/cp the configs over.

V2P,  not a popular move but one that is catered for by Platespin Power Convert.

I agree with unSpawn, just transfer the config files to a new VM
i did the same for my smoothwall
simply unplug the physical for testing, eventually the new squid will cache n your users wont even notice
