No, I keep getting a "No bootable CD floppy or hard disk was detected." error.

Someday this puppy'll work...

Perhaps I wasn't patient enough, after an hour of waiting, XP is finally installing

Hmm, nice - how did you get it to install?

Patience is a virtue, but I wish it was a pill.

Oh I see - now 2k is installing for me.

I had to enable Legacy Support for the VM. Nice.

I have VMware 4.0 beta. I never had any problems installing or running. My computer is an AMD Athlon 700 MHz 'Classic' with 512 megabytes of PC133 memory. I can access my cdrom and floppy drive without any problem. VMware is only medium fast when I have it in a window, but in fullsceen it is very fast. I don't know what computers you have but VMware runs fast on my system.

I tried running Half-life. Its skippy.

BTW, check your systems for an useless programs and turn off all the special effects that X Window does.
