    VMWare + Red Hat 9

    OK guys, I decided to go with VMware (thanks Horse) and 'virtually' install RH9 as a guest OS, instead of messing with all those nasty partitions. =)

    Burned the three cd's from the ISO's I grabbed from their site, created a boot diskette, and booted up Red Hat via VMWare.

    For the installation method, I select "Local CDROM." Boom.

    For some reason, VMWare doesn't detect my cd drive (designated as E: ) I've even tried pointing the CD drive to an .iso stored locally, with no luck.

    What am I doing wrong?
    It\'s 106 miles to Chicago, we\'ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it\'s dark and we\'re wearing sunglasses.

    Hit it!

    Why didn't you bump up your previous thread instead of starting a new one?

    Figured it was more of an issue operating VMWare, since I dropped the idea of partitioning all together.

    Back to the topic, any suggestions?
