That's interesting to know. Thanks. Since my message below I have
been able to install the beta and it works great. They have
streamlined the interface and it seems to be faster. My problem
was mostly cockpit trouble. I found out that I could run
vmware-install.pl in the chroot environment but had to boot into
LFS to run vmware-config.pl and complete the configuration.
