Which client are you running? Error10's of Balwolf's? Also what version of Vmware Player are you using. Dan might be able to recommend the setup he is using. His setup seems to be working great.
When I had troubles in VMware Player I had to go back to version 2.0.5 or 2.0.4 for reliability.
Now if we can just get BlankThis to run SMP we should be able to whoop some Replacements next month
Also I signed up to adopt a folder for the summer. Some people might not be able to keep their rigs running 24/7 with the heat from the summer so I offered the family's wine cellar. For some reason we have a 30A 220 dryer plug in there
