I want to install an 32bit ubuntu desktop on a 64bit debian server. The host does not have any desktop environment installed and I don't want to install one but the virtual machine should be a desktop OS which will be used over VNC or similar protocols. Is this possible without a host desktop?
What software should I use? I think I can use virtualbox and vmWare server but vmWare server is about 500MB and virtualbox is very small. VmWare seems to have a webinterface to controll the virtual machines which is quite nice since I have to start a virtualbox machine using ssh. Which one would you use?
