9000 Graphics Card. RAM for VMware allocated 512 MB. DVD-RW/CDROM-RW Combo.
I install and update Fedora Core6 in VMware Workstation5.5.3 gest OS WinXP
successfully. I could not see any virtual CD or DVD ROM Drive in my Window
XP explorer. But a DVD drive which works fine in XP and VMware workstation.

does not start installation automatically. Then I click Computer Icon placed
