from an iso live cd to a virtual machine
vmwarez.com: LiveCD Player Virtual Machine - this blog entry presents a small no idea how you could call it to hook up a live CD (iso image) as virtual machine that runs in vmplayer. This is pretty lovely since there are quite a few Virtual machines around. This one here was mentioned via digg. It provides some Linux flavor with mysql installed as well as all stuff required to develop RoR applications. Great! To get into developing rails is then a matter of downloading the image and make set it up to run in your vmware player!
