RE: Need for recommendation for setting up a virtual lab

I couldn't agree more. 

The VMware product is an excellent tool for testing security exploits. I
have a book coming out this August (Virtually Hacking, Hacking the
Virtual Computer) which details this procedure in a step-by-step
process. Chapter 1 specifically instructs the reader how too install and
setup virtual Windows and Linux testing machines.

Any CISSP that would like an advanced copy of Chapter 1 may contact me
directly. My only requirement is that as my material is copyrighted it
may not be distributed without my prior approval.

Get yourself vmware and Install some popular operating systems such as
linux, bsd, windows whatever...Learn about each paticular OS and the
security they implament and what you can do to make them more sure, once
you learn how you can secure them you can learn how to break that
security, good luck.
