 +These instructions assume that I have a virtual machine directory called "​Win_XP_Base"​. ​ You can, of course, do this with any virtual machine.
 +
 +Copy the VM directory.
 +
 +  cp -r Win_XP_Base Win_XP_<​name>​
 +
 +Switch to the new directory and edit the vmx file.  Replace Win_XP_Base with Win_XP_<​name>​
 +
 +  vim Win_XP_<​name>​.vmx
 +
 +Rename Win_XP_Base* files to Win_XP_<​name>​*
 +
 +Edit the vmdk file.  Replace Win_XP_Base with Win_XP_<​name>​.
 +
 +  vim Win_XP_<​name>​.vmdk
 +
