Actually, even the free server version is able to use a physical raw device,
at least the server 1 version.

I also do have a need to access a raw disk so I installed server 2, but this seems not able to configure a raw disk. I also have Workstation 5 and I made a VM with a raw disk but server 2 can't handle it.
I have an old rpm (server 1.3 32bit, I think) but this doesn't work on Suse 11.1 (compile problems).
The frustrating thing is, I did have access but I didn't take notes how I did it. And I'm certain it involved VMware.
Met vriendelijke groeten,
