Cant install salckware 11 under vmware in windows xp

It starts ok but when I'm prompt to create the disk either using fdisk or cfdisk I get an error stating it can't access the disk.
It should be a scsi disk, now the wierd thing is that Ubuntu installed with the same vm without any problems.

Could my iso be messed up?
I was able to do it once but then cancelled the instalation and also tried on a newly creted vm. this vmware runs on winxp, my other OS natively installed is suse 10.1.

The physical hard-drive may be scsi. What things inside the VM see
is almost definitely not. Try slacks bare or bare-acpi kernels.
