Hiya David,

I ran VMWare 2 from Win2000 w/ FreeBSD 4.2 (yeah, this was a while ago). 
The only problem I ran into was the editor I was using was not releasing 
the perl scripts for 10 to 15 seconds after saving .. it had a known bug 

I'm pretty sure I had apache, mod_perl, mysql and various other things
