Does anyone have any notes on installing the latest
VMWare Server? I get through the install process just fine, but then
upon reboot it just hangs after the "BIOS" stuff.
This happen because you dont have GRUB installed. You can download
'grub-disk' package using aptitude to get the floppy images and then
boot your Debian GNU/Hurd on VMWare.
Is that supposed to be before or after I get GNU/Hurd booted. I
couldn't find aptitude or apt-get on the installation CD. I was able to
find a floppy image of some kind online, but I haven't been successful
in installing it to hard drive using the floppy image. Maybe once I get
the network figured out I might be able to use apt-get to grab grub-disk.
I'd have to say that Hurd really needs to be easier to install if it is
going to gain traction against Linux.
