You might find running Linux on such a system with VMWare running Windows would require less RAM than a Windows-on-Windows setup. In fact, I am sure you would.

Although my first choice would also be to acquire a testbed system, if you are constrained from doing so and must run it on your workstation, I'd consider dual-booting a Linux setup in a totally separate partition, so the VMWare Windows session would have *nothing* to do with the rest of your setup.

Sounds like a lot of hassle--and it is!--but if this is to be a long-term situation I believe you'll find it worthwhile.

However, I also wouldn't want to run something like that on less than 1 GB of RAM, either...but then, that will also be the minimum I will put into my own next machine.
