What's wrong with your email?  I got a bunch of HTML at the end?

Anyway, VMWare is a special case.  It's got hooks deep into the Linux
network drivers that (as far as I know) are a showstopper that prevents
VMWare from running under the Linuxulator.

If you learn differently, I'd love to hear it, but it's not possible
as far as I know.
