Installing OpenSuSe 10.1 via VMWare


I recently installed OpenSuSe 10.1 via VMWare, however whenever I try to boot, it gives me this error:

Waiting for device /dev/hda1 to appear . . . . . . . . not found
exiting to /bin/sh

Any help for this? I tried installing OpenSuSe 10.1 to a physical HD, since I don't have a DVD burner, and don't have 5 cds to spare.

What I did was I installed Daemon Tools, downloaded the OpenSuSe DVD, then mounted the DVD with Daemon Tools.

I then edited the options for the CD/DVD drive in VMWare to my E: drive, which is, of course, my Daemon Tools drive. I set my HD to a physical one, independant persistent.

If anyone can help, it'd be greatly appreciated.
