damn small linux dsl 4.4.10 loaded onto hdd in a vmware esx vm

Hi all

Could someone please provide a walk-thru to get dsl 4.4.10 installed onto a vmware esx 4 vm ?
I downloaded the iso as well as the vmware images ...but would like to install onto hdd inside my vm.
The dsl disk provies options for it but unfortualtely dsl doesn't detect the scsi disks assigned to the esx virtual machine.
I would like to install it onto the scsi disks assigned to the vm.

Thanks a million

You did know that penguins and polar bears never meet in the wild ?

And did you know that VMware ESXi and VMware server and VMware player and Vmware fusion are completely free too ?
And did you know that vmware is still the only virualization product that supports the most operating systems ?
And did you know that there are different types of vitualization ?
And did you know that their enterprise products support featuers others are still dreaming about ?

And quite frankly what the heck did your answer help with my question ???

I mean are you actually trying to sell free stuff ?
