Re: [vox-tech] which linux is most compatible with VMWare ?

I'm assuming (this is dangerous)

That you are using a windows host OS and linux guest OS?

If so, did you install VM, then install VM tools, then install Linux?

I currently run MS 2000, and Redhat 6.2 as the guest OS, I did once have a
problem like you described, I reinstalled VM and VM tool and Linux, and the
problem went away.  I know this is the brute force approach but I didn't
want to continue till I had a clean start.
