Hi I was looking to install this with or under VMware on windows 7 64bit, is this possiable and where can I find instructions on how to do so? I have searched the site and can not find anything for help on installing this with VMware.

Also I have VMware Workstation do I need VMware player?

Of course you can =) Actually trying Ubuntu in a virtualized environment is more than encouraged =)
