Home Lab

Dear All,

Am planning to setup a home lab for playing around with and getting a better understanding of security.... nothing professional - i scrounge a living from looking after small x86 Windows SOHOs... have currently got 1 x Win XP machine (Sempron 2600+) & one 1 x OpenSUSE/dualboot XP (p4 2.6)... I have a further 4 old PCs - 1GHz durons, 733 P3s, etc. but am thinking of dumping them and using VMWare... any thoughts, opinions, etc. appreciated...
