On to the next problem...  Tried the above configuration using the
vmware-any-any-update65.tar.gz from
http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/ as recommended in an earlier
thread.  Host is FC2T3 + rawhide updates through today,
kernel-2.6.5-1.327 on Athlon 1Ghz, Abit KT7A-RAID mobo, selinux in
permissive mode.  VMware starts and seems to work OK with W2K and White
Box 3.0.

Booted VMware VM from from current FC2 rawhide boot.iso, specified
"linux vdso=0" at the boot prompt, and got further through the install
process than previously, but after specifying kbd, mouse, networking,
and trying a NFS install from the host, the host reboots.  Possibly
relevant lines in /var/log/messages:

This is a bit worse than VMware crashing without bothering the host OS.  :-(

Any further suggestions appreciated.
