Actually, it is not that straight forward to get a host OS working
properly in VMWare.  For example, RHEL 4 failed to work properly for a
while.  The clock was not going with the correct rate.  I believe this
is fixed in WMware now.  :)

So there is some work and testing needed on the kernel (or WMware)
side to get VMware working with debian.  Not sure what the status for
woody, sarge and etch is at the moment. :)
