  • Running a Linux based hosting platform in hyper-V

    I have a dedicated server running server 2008 with Hyper-V.
    I use it for testing, and also as a work space for email etc (so I have a desktop that's accessible from anywhere.

    The server is majorly over powered for what I use it for.

    Seeing as I run a few websites I'm interested in utilising the server to host a few of them (I have 5 usable ip's as well).

    All my sites run on Linux hosting though, so I wondered if there is a supported way of setting up a Linux guest os to run as a hosting environment in hyper-V?
