What do you mean by your two references to "[Vv]mware" above? VMware is
the company and they offer several different virtualisation products
which might be applicable here - VMware Workstation, VMware Player,
VMware Server, VMware ESX[i], and SLES for VMware. It would help if you
could specify which VMware product (and version) you mean.
