Ok the problem !!!!!!!!

ok after all this .I have a dual boot machine with Linux SuSE 7.1 and Win XP Pro .I use lilo from diskette to boot and i download vmware to run the win partition in linux since i use it only for matlab.I have no experience in virtual machines.I read the manual and for the problems tha occurs while using raw disks with a guest operating system thas has ACPI(like winxp).First i configure a new hardware profile and named it vmware.Then run the host o.s.(linux) and launch the configurtion wizard.Show i use the raw disks to run a second os in the dualboot machine as explained in manual.To overcome the problem with ACPI start the windows (not in vm) and insert winxp cd.I boot the vmware hardware profile and did the following
expand D:\i386\hal.dl_ C:\windows\system32\vmhal.dll
expand D:\i386\ntoskrnl.exe C:\windows\system32\vmntoskrenel.exe
then reboot the machine and start linux.I start vmware and power it on .The boot went on good but after choosing the correct hardware profile the damn thing throug a window saying that the guest os has shutdown the cpu and in the vmware console the screen went blue and had some addresses in it.When i start after that windows it says that is an inproper shutdown was detected and should checkdisk.
i cannot boot the partition of winxp because always i get the same error message that the cpu was shutdown by the guest os(winxp).
i believe that i have enough details in this post.

ok, well i did tell you to actually put it in the thread that ALREADY exists... ahh nevermind.... your post is still very hard to read and you still seem to think we are a windows herlp site as well as linux.

right so this is all just for matlab? go get matlab for linux.

Difficult to read is an understatement. Even if English isn't your first language, you should be able to put a space or two after a sentence.

Your problem is with VMWare. Go to their site and look for XP problems like yours. You are not the first one to have this problem and they probably have a tech bulletin on it.
