I never said media that passes an md5sum is bad.  Please point 
out where I said that.

Makes no difference really.  If the MD5sums of the CDROM or ISO 
image don't match what we supply, then it is corrupt, either bad 
media, or broken download, corrupt hard disk or something.  If 
your images/CDs/whatever *DO* match our official images, then 
that isn't the problem - and that is what I was asking you for.

Well we do hope that the distribution installs inside VMware, we 
do not ever officially test installation into VMware, and it's of 
course as you said not supported.  The type of problem you're 
reporting doesn't sound to me that it would be caused by VMware 
itself as I stated before, but you never know.  Hard to say.

Can you reproduce it with a real OS install on real hardware not
using VMware?
