    Hi there,
    I am asking a general question about VMware Fusion for the mac, I'm not going to install Windows on my Mac, but Linux actually. I am quite scared of partitioning my hard drive and I heard a rumor that I don't have to with VMware. Is that true? Can I run Windows or Linux on a mac without paritioning as long as Im using VMware?

    Thanks in advance.

    Both Emulators do not partition the HD, just BootCamp.

    I'm not sure I understand how that works, I don't know very much about partioning and BootCamp. So if something Is partitioned in BootCamp that means it will just put all the data it needs to store for Linux on the Mac OS X somewhere like in the Documents Folder or something?

    Do I need to do anything before I install VMware? like set up BootCamp or anything?
