    You didn't tell us about your existing set up. What are you running vmware on....Windows or Ubuntu?

    If yo uwish to use them at the same time you need to setup vmware, virtualbox or another virtualization platform on your chosen host system, then install the other OS as a virtual machine. once that is done you can run the primary system all of the time and launch the virtual machine when you want to work in the other OS.

    Which is exactly what I do. I use VirtualBox, but VMware is much the same. In fact, I run CentOS 5 (Linux) as a host and Windows XP, Solaris x86, QNX, and various other Linux distributions in virtual machines, sometimes several at once (so I can test network messaging between different operating systems).
