Wouldn't even bother with vmware workstation....go with ESXi...it's free
 and a lot more powerful.

Unless of course you need a host OS for other things.

I'm thinking of building a vmware target box for a pentest practice lab
consisting of:

cheap Dell server with 16 gigs of ram PowerEdge T105
vmware workstation

My question is with the host OS.
I was contemplating the home version of Windows 7 to give me a 64 bit OS
to support the amount of ram I'm planning on
Does anyone have any experience with the latest version of VMware
workstation and if it will run properly on Windows 7?

would 64 bit Ubuntu be a better idea?
