That is too broad a question to really help succinctly.

Since you know nothing, start with VMware Workstation and get a license for a Windows operating system (Windows 7, Vista, or XP). Install Workstation, start it up, "Make a New Machine" and install the system above. Learn how machines install and how you can network them.

Undoubtedly you will have questions, but get started as above.

From this point (and some solid learning) you may want to set up an ESX server in a business and consolidate servers. That is a huge leap from Workstation.

Look up Andrew Hancock:

and read some of his VMware Articles. That will help you as well.

I do suggest dipping your toe in the water with a good machine, VMware Workstation, and some virtual machines to test. You learn a lot this way. I took a client into virtualization by knowing some underpinnings.

Andy - Thank you so much for contributing here.
