I am using Linux since SuSE v5.3 but occasionaly I have to dual boot into 
windows for a program (GPS processing) not available under Linux.

Instead of having to dual boot, I would like to setup vmware and use the 
existing winxp partition as virtual machine. I followed the instructions on
but when I try to set up the virtual machine I get an error about the fact 
that the slected partition (/dev/sda - partition 2) is not valid. I suppose 
it has something to do with the LSI stuff, but I do not understand that part. 
Some advice please
