Create a Test Environment with VMWare
We hope that you are already using Lotus Foundations Start. However,
you may create a virtual environment using VMWare (not for production,
but good for ad-hoc testing and learning). You will need to have
VMWare (licensed product) to do this. Here are videos to get you started
for installation and setup.
