Scenario is like this:
I would like to configure my PC for two separate displays. The main display would be for the driver, using Navigation etc. Second display would be for passengers (kids and other brats), they could watch clips etc. Both displays has mouses, other uses TV-OUT for video ingress.
The main points are that there must be separate cursors for each screen. Neither of them can't distract eachother. Whatever the driver does, it wont affect the passenger - and vice versa of course.
What if I make the other one a virtual PC, tha runs its own OS and peripherals? That at least pops up some questions:
- Should I use VMWare, it is free at least? What would be the best combo; running Linux on the bottom and VMWare on top of that? The driver needs XP, since the navigation softwares are better for Windows. For the passenger a light linux would do. What VMWare should I use, Server, player or workstation?
- I have two physical mouses attached, can I set them so that the other (Virtual) OS uses the other and the other uses other? What about the displays, should I attach second VGA on to it, or does VMWare know how to set TV-OUT as the primary and only display for the other system?
- Thinking of using Jetways mobo, any issues with HW? Has anyone ran a VMWare on these ITX-mobos? Will it bee too much for the HW to run a lite Linux and on topf that, another light Linux and an XP (embedded thou)?
