Installing Windows on VMware (Host: Suse Linux 9.0)


My probelm: I have installed VMware 4.0 on Suse Linux 9.0. Trying to install Windows (2000 or XP) failed. I tried it about 10 times. The resut is that it always interrupts somewhere during the installation, not necessarily always at the same point.
Has anybody similar experience and give me a hint what to try? I have tried several installation paths (home, own partition as virtual drive and as physical drive) with 4 GB and more. I think the memory should be enough (300 MB).
Might it result from my NVidia GForce 4 MX 440 with AGP8X which caused already some trouble (but should now be installed correctly)?
