which i though VMWare did for me. I am deperate to get this working
Cool down mate :)
VMWare doesn't create partitions, it creates a
file that -towards the virtual machine- acts as a
hard-drive. Or at least that was the case with all
the vmware-versions that I have seen so far.
Now, if you boot that virtual machine of the CDROM
you should see a hard-disk the size of the file
you told VMware to allocate for the VM.
So, before running slack's setup, do a
fdisk -l /dev/hda
and verify it's the right size (virtual HDD/VMware's file).
Then run the above command without the -l (note, it's
a small L)
Create a swap partition (how much RAM does the box have?)
and a second partition for your linux-filesystem.
Then run setup and enjoy! :}
P.S.: Really, it should be the other way round ;)
mickymouse's OS should run in the VM :D
