FC7t2 works fine for me on a Linux hosted VMWareServer. I used the BusLogic SCSI
adapter (LSI adapter does seem to have problems showing disks in FCx).

For SATA disks I've had to pass kernel parameters to the installer on boot. IIRC, it
was "pci=nomsi" for FC6 but I've not tried FC7 directly on physical hardware yet.
