VmWare 1.09 works fine on Slackware, no problems, no modifications needed. As to being not free, yes it is. The OP was using USB support, so clearly wasn't using VBox OSE, but the equivalent closed source VBox, available under the same terms as VMware. Ergo, Vmware 1.09 should meet the OP's needs.

vmware workstation is not free, only vmware player. vmware player only allows you to use already created machines, not to create them yourself.

It doesn't matter, really. For my current needs (the Desktop app for Blackberry), VB does a fantastic job.

Well count me as flabbergasted. VMware must have done something recently because I downloaded VMware Workstation 2 a couple of months ago, and VMWare was giving it away for free. I just checked their website and sure enough, Workstation now has a 30 day trial for free, otherwise you have to buy it.

Maybe you were lucky and got a promotion? It has always beena trial as far as I know.

OK, I wasn't hallucinating. You can VMWare Server for free by registering. I've been using this for quite some time and it is definitely NOT the 30 day free trial. It allows you to create as many virtual machines as you want.
