How to install Linux in a virtual machine over SSH?

Hi!

I've got a Fedora 10 server and I would like to install a virtual machine in it. Because it's a remote server, I have to install it over SSH.
I'll need something like VMWare, where I can install Fedora 10 on, all remotely. I was wondering if this is possible. If it is, are there any special steps to take care of? Which virtualization tool would be the best to use?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Sir,

First at all you need to install VMWare on the remote machine and this could not be dome if you do not have someone that pick in the CD inside the CDROM drive and restart the server manually and follow the instructions on the screen...As soon as the VMWare is installed then you can install a VMWare Infrastructure client on a windows machine and create virtual machine on the server...

in order to install fedora or what else on the server, you have to download an image of the OS on the Windows machine and install it using this image....

Hi,

Thanks for your answer. I do not have the possibility for someone to do this for me. Aren't there tools available other than VMWare to do this fully remotely?

TIA

Hello,

The installation of the virtual machine has some delay since there were some other things with higher priority to work on. I haven't tested or tried it out, but I guess your responses will help me out greatly if I get that far.

So for now, I will close this question and accept your answers as the solution. However, as I said, I did not yet try it.

Thank you all!
