    I have a domain on my Hyper-V VPS.

    My forums are php and I'd prefer to run them on a linux server.

    Is it possible for me to setup a linux account on my reseller account and have a sub-domain on the VPS use that?

    Yes, you can do like this. You just need to point DNS A record of sub-domain to your vps IP.

    That seems backwards... or maybe I explained it backwards. To be clearer:

    On my Hyper VPS I have a domain:

    whiteoakgames.com - asp.net website

    a subdomain

    forums.whiteoakbooks.com

    I want the forums.whiteoakbooks.com to actually be a linux server on my reseller account

    Doesn't that mean I need A records on the main domain( VPS whiteoakgames.com ) to point to the linex account?

    In this case, first you need to add main domain "whiteoakgames.com" in any of end user Linux account under your reseller account. After that add sub-domain "forums.whiteoakbooks.com" in same account.
    Now, go to DNS settings of this domain and point DNS "A" record of sub-domain to new shared linux server IP.
