    When you installed the WindowsXP did it install as it would when doing it to a regular hard drive?

    Strange, it seems the configuration file is in your /home directory. Did you move it there?

    Okay, the only way I've seen an uninstall work, at least for me, was to use Synaptic.

    In Synaptic do a Search for vmware. Then click the Status bar near the bottom, left of the windows. When vmware-server shows from the search, click on it and go down and click on Mark for Complete Removal. After that happens, reinstall by clicking to install vmware-server.

    All right, you installed using the package from the vmware web site.

    Go ahead and use apt-get

    Code:
    sudo apt-get uninstall vmware
    and see it that works. You might have to use vmware-server as a program name. Then install using Synaptic or apt-get. Use all the defaults on installing. You can use the same original license number you have.
