Although it isn't officially supported by VMware, you can use VMware Server with Debian GNU/Linux as the host operating system. Here's an example of how I set up VMware Server 1.0.4 on my Intel Pentium 3. Use the right kernel-image for your CPU. (FYI, the old sarge version of this page is now archived.)
# apt-get install linux-image-2.6.18-5-686 # apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.18-5-686
download the VMware Server software tarball. ] tar xzvf VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.tar.gz ] cd vmware-server-distrib ] sudo bash # ./vmware-install.pl Install to the destination folder: /opt/vmware/ Linux kernel headers are in: /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-686/build/include After the install is complete, copy this file to prevent an error message: # cp /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0.15.0 /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0/libpng12.so.0
create new "custom" virtual machine use Virtual IDE hard disk
I haven't installed Win2k from scratch in VMware Server yet, instead I just upgraded my VMware Workstation Windows 2000 machine to a VMware Server virtual machine. piece of cake. No trouble.
Windows 98 is no longer supported by Mircosort but it installs fine in Vmware Server.
The virtual ethernet card uses the pcnet32 module. It is autodetected by the debian installer.
The virtual ethernet card uses the pcnet32 module. This module is already in the bf24 kernel.
