the image should be okay as long as it's libio based. do you know the set
version? It should be H0 or higher.

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.
