Hi All,
If you want to set up a test environemnt very quickly, I found the easiest was to download a JumpBox for Joomla from the JumpBox website. One of the files is Jumpbox.vmx which you then open with VMWare Player. Install JoomlaLMS on the jumpbox and away you go. This should take no more than 30 minutes. You can backup the VMware files and if, while playing with it, you corrupt anything, it will take minutes to go back to the clean installation. This is how I do development and testing.
Note that the JumpBox is free for 30 days evaluation.
Hope this helps somebody.
