Subject: Re: [Gumstix-users] VMWare Filesystem question

I've successfully used the blank IDE image as provided on this page:
http://www.ffnn.nl/pages/articles/linux/vmware-player-image-creation.php
which gives you a 20 Gb virtual disk.

Note that if you use the template vmware image on that page, you will
have NAT networking enabled by default.  I found bridged networking to
be much more useful.  I don't have the vmware image with me at the
moment, but it was a one line change.
