Virtual OS Tutorial - Install, Setup and Operate

I have produced 3 videos that describe the installation, setup and operation of a virtual operating system running under VMware Player.

Because of particular setup of the control document for the videos, I have filed the control document on my OneDrive rather than publishing it in the tutorial section where I do not have the necessary facilities.

If you want to view and operate the document in your browser, go to this link.

If you prefer to view and operate the 3 page PDF with your own PDF reader, download the PDF from this link (right click on the icon).

Thanks Mike. It was a lot of work. The videos I had to make a few times before they were right. Not so easy in a foreign language.

Good work Wolfgang. It will certainly help a VM novice like me.
I wonder if it is worth making into a specific tutorial since it may get hidden even though Brink has linked it.

I guess I could put it into the tutorial section - one day when I am not lazy. I do though like the setup I can make in Word/PDF. That is not possible exactly the same way as in do it.
