Living with Linux on the Laptop: VMWare

Installed VMWare Workstation 6.0 for Linux. (I know, VMWare Server is free, as is Xen, but I use many of the aspects of VMWare workstation while I’m teaching, so I need to see how it works in Linux.) Looking forward to trying it.

Just tried to load an existing Win XP VM and got a file error. Something about failing to lock the file. I doubt that this is a Linux or VMWare issue. I suspect it may have something to do with a VM in a suspended state that was moved to my Linux machine. More stuff to work on.
