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


I have posted two VMware images for download. One for Sarge, another for Etch. They both have VMware Tools loaded. They were built using the default desktop installation. The last time they were built was 9/10. You can find them at "www.netliving.com". I will post a fresh image every two months.

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.
