I'm using vmware workstation 2.0.4 build 1142 on RH7.1. I tried to
install RH7.2 as a guest OS and it seemed to install OK, but when it
tried to boot, it gets to where the kernel loads and I get
VMware Workstation PANIC: NOT_IMPLEMENTED F(575):951
from vmware. Anybody gotten RH7.2 to work as a guest OS in vmware? I
couldn't find anything on www.vmware.com about it. I did a default
workstation install of RH7.2.
