    What version of vmware are you using?

    It sounds like you need a patch for vmware-config.pl but I would start by making sure you're using the latest version (1.0X or 2.01). If you aren't then uninstall the one you are using and install the latest.

    If that's not the case then search the forum for the links to the latest patch.

    Re: HowTo: Windows (XP) on Ubuntu with VMWare Server

    I am using VMware server version 1.0.6-91891... At least that's what I installed on March 24 2009. I installed it in linux 8.04, then upgraded to 8.10, then 9.04.... I'm new to linux, sorry... What's the best way to uninstall since I installed it in 8.04 and am now on 9.04? thank you!!!

    * I thought you said you had upgraded? Or are you talking about vmware upgrading rather than Ubuntu upgrading.

    * To get rid of the floppy disk error, delete the floppy disk from the virtual hardware on your vm.

    thx for the floppy info! Yea, I'm talking about upgrading vmware now... What is the correct or recommended way to do that? Uninstall then install updated version, or just install updated version straight away? I don't see the program listed in the add/remove menu, but I can search/google how to uninstall if that's the recommended approach. thx!

    Theoretically you can just run the vmware installer and it will try and uninstall first but it's pretty flakey. Better to uninstall first.

    Uninstall is just:

    /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall

    You may or may not have to patch the new version's vmware-config.
