Consultant answer - it Depends :smileygrin:

there are many threads on gettign ESX and ESXi to work under Workstation, just do a search.

but the basic crux is that, if you can get it to work, unless your Host machine is very powerfull and dedicated to the job the overhead that virtualisation over virtualistion puts on the end machine is such that for anything other than demo, it is next to useless. ie real work is a no-no.
