Hardy Under VMWare Fusion

With some tweaking I have gotten Hardy to work better than Gutsy ever 
did. It boots faster and the scroll ball function, which I could never 
fix in Gutsy but had in Feisty, is back.

Installing VMware Tools and getting the mouse to work needs some 
finessing. Check out

I barely used Gutsy on my iMac because of the slow boot-up and the mouse 
issue.

Hope someone benefits from this, though I know that using a proprietary 
OS as my main one is anathema in the open source world ;)
