Running 9.1 Pro, kernel 2.6.4-54.5-default, plus all YOU updates and nothing
updated via apt that I know of that would influence VMware 4.5.1. Ran
vmware-config.pl and it compiled and configured just fine. VMware came up
asking if I really wanted to run with such an advanced kernel and I chose to
create a new UUID for my existing Win2K virtual machine.

The USB situation has me learning new stuff. Haven't quite figured it out
since some USB devices work fine and others don't in Linux. Forget VMware
seeing them for now. I will try the

suggestions and see what happens in Linux and VMware.
