Partitioning and Virtualization

I make use of both partitioning and virtualization. My current system is a triboot Linux (Debian), FreeBSD 6, and Windows XP.

I prefer to work under FreeBSD, but much of my work requires Windows. When I need to work under Windows, I use VMware Server to boot FreeBSD and Linux from the partitions and run them in a nice, virtualized fashion. VMware also comes in handy when I'm testing my hobby OS, or running various other small OSes that I like to use sometimes.
