IMHO is VmWare quite Tricky and may force an nasty effort to make it running.
(See: proprietary driver modules have to be compiled)

We used vmware vor more than two years, but the efforts to keep it running
are ugly.

So we switched over to VirtualBox -

Since then everything works nearly fine and in good performance (refer to the USB Thread).

The Virtual Box package for Gusty and Dapper are working out-of-the-Box like a charm.

Innotek made a good job ;->>
