   Actually, VMware 3.2.1  works quite OK on 4.x. I run it on
5.4-STABLE as well, but with SMP, acpi and apic all turned off. It's
annoying, but it does the job.

If it's there, and you can see it, it's real.
If it's not there, and you can see it, it's virtual.
If it's there, and you can't see it, it's transparent.
If it's not there, and you can't see it, you erased it.
