Why not use VMware ESXi?  It's free and has it's own OS.  Then just load up your guest OS as needed.

All

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?
