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 4.0.5.

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 build 4460.

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
	with Windows XP too... but I might give it a try on XP, if I
	get some time today.

My next test target will be the latest build of VMware-4.

Bear with me on this... I will get back to you. :-)
