Unfortunately, the VMware video drivers for F10 do not support the
required acceleration needed to run Desktop Effects when running F10 in
a VM on Workstation 6.5. That's why you're getting the blank white
screen.

F10 in a VM on Workstation 6.5 + Desktop Effects = Bad Idea.

I'm reopening this issue not as such but as complementary information.
when i run F10 (without desktop effect) under KDE, it always starts in 800x600 under VMWare 6.5 whereas last session i set it up to 1200 x 800 or to 1152 x 864.
moreover, i setup the KDE Manager to display the same login windows as F10 KDE live... but nothing is displayed.

so where could be the problem ?
thx.
