This is a bug in VMware on Linux (possibly Windows, too), triggered by
something unusual DragonFly is doing. I've seen it on both 4.0.2 and
Basically, VMware's console becomes extremely sluggish -- it can take
minutes for keypresses to register or output to update. I've managed
to reboot VMware under such a circumstance, and the slugishness
continues into the boot phase and BIOS setup screen, which pretty much
nails it as a VMware bug.
I've been chasing what in DF causes this for a couple weeks now, but
to no avail.
On that note, I am going to download the latest shareware of
VMWare and test out this problem, as currently I am running
Ok, I have tested this on build 4460 of VMware without any
issues. Instead of burning your ISO on a CD-R, could you
please boot directly from the latest live-cd ISO? I have
successfuly been able to configure and install the latest of
live-CDs onto the VMware.
This is on a Windows 2000 Advanced Server, with the latest
service pack, and it also works on Windows 2000 Professional;
so I would make an assumption that it would be the same case
