Don't know about that yet, but it's working for me out of the box on
up-to-date F12.  I had some problem getting my dual-boot WinXP to run
virtually, but I can help with that now, if you need it.

What I can't seem to do is run vmplayer.  I have no idea what that's
about.  It starts normally, opens a window, then just exits.  No
crashes, no relevant messages.  Not sure what that's about yet.
