Hi Mark,

I have not tried VMware Player but if helps with concept.....

Updated headers and as much as basic installation files.
I have installed VMware server 2.0.2 with a patch on my Ubuntu 10.04
and it works along with FireFox 3.5.9.

I currently have 4 vm runnng on it .... 2 64-bit Ubuntu (Guest OS), 1
32-bit Ubuntu (Guest OS) and WindowsXPsp2 (test platform)
