I just got VMware-player installed and wrote a VMX file to run a Windows 2000 VM. It installed just fine, but when it restarts and tries to detect the hardware, it hangs 1/4 of the way through.

Any ideas how I can fix this?

Cypher,

Search the VMWare forums, I remember seeing something regarding this.

I figured it out. I had pressed Ctrl+Alt which handed mouse control back to Fedora. So the VM paused until I clicked in the VMware Player window again.
