No, Peter, that's the same mistake I made, and it is why I
started this thread.

You are right about the $ bit (groups of services defined in
/etc/insserv.conf) but the vmware does not refer to a script
it refers to the name of something some other script PROVIDES.

In this case, the Provides in the vmware script is named
VMware and if you don't get the capitalization right things
go wrong.
