    I'm sorry... use "remove" for install.

    Try vmware-server.

    If that doesn't work, go into your package that had VMware-server-1.0.4, in the folder vmware-server-distrib/bin you will find an uninstall script. In a terminal cd over to the folder and run the script:

    Code:
    sudo ./ vmware-uninstall.pl
    That's about it for me... no more suggestions.

    sudo apt-get remove vmware-server gave me this:
    Package vmware-server is not installed, so not removed
    i am going to try the other ways and tell if its works

    Okay, what happened to the package you downloaded from vmware.com? Where is it?

    Okay, as I pointed to before. Go in and find the uninstall.pl file and run it. That will uninstall vmware. It's in the /vmware-server-distrib/bin directory.

    I just started playing with VirtualBox today. XP ran very well and I plan on running office 2007 on it soon. OpenOffice is great but dyslexia is difficult to deal with without a built in grammar checker. VirtualBox has plenty of options and the one in the repos is open sourced.

    I would advise booting XP and creating a new hardware profile for vm use, and then using the VMWARE convert utility to create a vm of the existing XP partition and using that.
