I want to get a small working mapr hadoop instance up on ec2 so i can play around with it and begin to learn more about it.

How would I proceed?

The mapr site (1) mentions starting with vmplayer (2).

So, does one install vmplayer on an ec2 AMI and than install mapr or are there AMI's available with vmplayer already installed and/or with vmplayer+mapr already installed?
