Hardwares as follow.

AMDXP 1700+
512MB Twinmos
Gainward Geforce4 Ti4200
Creative SB !Live
Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical

P.S I have not installed VMWare tools yet cause it won't allow me to install till it reach X. Has VMWare got something to do with the vmware screen resolution?

yes, vmware does have something to do with the res, but also as does your x display.

download and install the nvidia drivers since you have a gforce graphics card. if you have an nforce motherboard, be sure do download and install those as well. (linux ones in vmware, just clarifying) follow the instructions carefully, including modifying xf86config file.

hmm...... my nforce and nvidia driver are quite new already. Using nforce 3.13 and forceware 56.64. But does the driver really cause that booting problem?

sigh, is it fate that I have no luck with slackware in vmware

the nforce probably isn't, but if you don't have the nvidia driver, yes, perhaps it might be. i'm not sure as to your current config. b/c my system will run vesa without the graphics drivers from nvidia installed...

I use the Linux version of VMWare 4.0.5 with Red Hat 9.1 as my host OS. I have not yet tried using Slackware as a guest OS. I recently found a web page which explains how to use Slackware as either a host or guest under VMWare. VMWare does not offically support the use of any version of Slackware. I used the instructions in the link below to use Slackware 9.1 as the host OS. About half-way down that webpage it explains how to use Slackware as a guest.

http://www.cs.ucr.edu/~jbyrne/vmware.htm

The virtual machines that I use as guests are Windows 2000, Windows XP, Red Hat 9, Red Hat 8.0, Red Hat 7.3 and PC-DOS 2000. On my Slackware 9.1 host I also had to comment out the line that disables DGA in the XF86Config file. In your XF86Config file it says to not initialize the XFree86-DGA but, on a guest OS that is proably OK. I don't know for sure. That probably would not be necessary in a guest OS. I will now let you two get back to what you were talking about.

Did you try installing slackware(guest) in vmware under winxp(host)?

btw, is that webby talking about getting vmware to work under linux? I have problem booting slackware under winxp.
