Will eConfig be supported on Linux any time soon? :)

Fgarat, <br /> Unfortunately no. The IBM e-config team doesn't have plans to support Linux. The underlying technology for the e-config application is provided by a 3rd party vendor and that code was not designed to work on Linux, it only works on the 32-bit Windows versions at this time. They are in the process of evaluating a solution to support the 64-bit Windows environments in future e-config releases. One of the core components of the application uses MSJVM which will not work on 64-bit machines and is no longer supported by Microsoft. <div>&nbsp;</div> -- Tony

Actually you can get you ntfs partition in your XP guest, although you will have to unmount it in RHEL first. You can pass block devices directly to KVM guests so it will see it as drive D: - sorry I forget the syntax in your xml file, but Virt-manager will be able to sort it out for you. It can even do it with the VM running. <div>&nbsp;</div> Or you could just export it as a SAMBA share from RHEL.
