VMware problem

I have installed VWware in RedHalt 8.0. And, installed windows XP in VWware.
I can't see any ShareFolder or hard disk, just disk C only.
I can't send data form winXP to RH8.0 directly. Only ftp or mail can do~
Does anyone know what's the problem?

Thanks!

Max

Re: VMware problem

It is a virtual machine. So they are connected via a virtual NC. Assign IPs and netmasks to connect as it where a physical separate machine.

VMware problem

Config Samba in your Redhat 8 then you can share files via Windows workgroup network.

Re: VMware problem

I have installed linux in vmware and use ShareFolder. The steps are:

1. Installing VMware Tools

a. Power on the virtual machine.
After the guest operating system has started, prepare your virtual machine to install VMware
Tools. Choose VM > Install VMware Tools. from the VMware Workstation menu
b. The remaining steps take place inside the virtual machine.
Be sure the guest operating system is running in text mode. You cannot install VMware Tools
from a terminal in an X window session
c. As root , mount the VMware Tools virtual CD-ROM image, change to a working directory (for
example, /tmp), uncompress the installer, then unmount the CD-ROM image.

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
cd /tmp
tar zxf /mnt/cdrom/vmware-linux-tools.tar.gz
umount /mnt/cdrom
d. Run the VMware Tools installer.

cd vmware-tools-distrib
./vmware-install.pl
e. startx

2. Using Shared Folders
Go to VM > Settings > Options and click Shared folders. > add >...
In a Linux virtual machine, shared folders appear under /mnt/hgfs.

VMware problem

VMware only supports the kernel or system in its compatible list.

So I think you should install the kernel source package if you can't use ShareFolder, and then run
vmware-install.pl, during installtion, it will ask the kernel source path.

Re: VMware problem

As hongwj say:

you must notice you system run under init3(text mode) to install vmware-tools

after install vmware-tools then return init5(x-windows)
