Though maybe it would just be easier to try to get VMware working

I am on Hardy (8.04 LTS) now but could upgrade to Intrepid (8.10) if
that helped.

I'm using VMware Player 2.5.1 build-126130 with Ubuntu 8.10.

Best get the .bundle at http://www.vmware.com/download/player/download.html

Install via "sudo sh VMware-Player-xxxxxxx.bundle"

And luroh's tip if your keyboard acts up in Haiku:

sudo gedit /etc/vmware/config

and add

xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true


That worked for me last time bloody vmware player didn't start up after a 
kernel update.

Ubuntu: reminding those of us who use it why we work on Haiku.

Amen.
