RE: request for VMware image of Etch beta 3 release minimal netinstall

I will create one now for you if you want it...but it will be a GSX
image and not Workstation...OR...I guess I could do a Workstation
Version for ya...let me re-install Workstation.
It shouldn't take too long on the server I have here.

Just let me know if you really want it.

Subject: request for VMware image of Etch beta 3 release minimal

create a virtual machine for Etch beta 3 release with a minimal install?

There is an Etch virtual machine available at the VMware site:


but it has Gnome, etc., and is intended for desktop use.  I prefer
starting from a bare install and adding whatever I need.

Here is a good example of a virtual machine minimal install using Sarge:


A nice feature is that the image was taken after the first portion of
installation was complete and it was time to reboot the machine and do
the final configuration steps (with base-config?).  This allows you to
better tune the virtual machine to your network environment.
