We've been reported problems with vmware many times. I'm afraid Vmware
is not free software and is not supported. If you want to use the
GNU system inside a sandbox, I suggest you use Bochs (see bochs.sf.net)
which is free supported software and works much better than Vmware.
Anyway, the best would be to get a real box for some usable speed.
