hi all...

messing around with vmware and fbsd 8...

has anybody used vmware esxi 4 to put a bunch of fbsd machines on it?
i also installed the vmsphere client (they call it) which is pretty nice 
interface to interact with the virtual machines but apparently doesn't 
know much on how to install vmware tools on a bsd guest.

so the question is which vmware tools should i get for the fbsd 8 guests 
to go with the esxi 4.1. in the ports there are vmware-tools6, 5, 4, 3. 
tried six. it wants some disk. there is also the open-vmware-tools. is 
that open one better to play with the esxi 4.1 an the vmsphere thing?

also is there anything better than vmware for virtualization that plays 
nice and with fbsd?
