Vmware player used to be in the Ubuntu repository (Feisty?) I've installed the latest player from vmware's site on Gutsy but my XP virtual machine now thinks it's running on new hardware. This is a problem because XP wants to re-activate and it can't because the network doesn't seem to work, not sure if it's the vmware settings or XP's settings.

Got nowhere with this so I thought I'd try and get hold of the version the vm used to be used in feisty and try that. Unless anyone can think of a way round this.
