Hi guys,

For those of you running VMWare (2) on -current, how fast do you expect it to

I'm running it quite successfully on a 750MHz PIII w/ 128MB RAM, and the 
following disk controller / disk

    atapci0: <Intel PIIX4 ATA33 controller> port 0xfc90-0xfc9f at device 7.1 on pci0
    ata0: at 0x1f0 irq 14 on atapci0
    ata1: at 0x170 irq 15 on atapci0
    ad0: 17301MB <FUJITSU MHJ2181AT> [35152/16/63] at ata0-master using UDMA33

This is -current from about three weeks ago.  It works, but it's a bit slow.
Applications themselves run at a reasonable speed, but every now and then
(can be as frequent as 10-15 seconds) the guest OS (Windows 98 in this case)
will freeze or run very slowly -- the mouse pointer doesn't track properly,
keystrokes are queued up.  After a couple of second things settle back down,
the queued keystrokes and mouse movements manifest in the window, and so on,
only to repeat shortly afterwards.  I don't have this sort of problem with
other apps (unless I load 56 copies of Netscape, naturally).

Is this a common issue people are seeing?

Internet connection, $19.95 a month.  Computer, $799.95.  Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month.  Software, free.  USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars.  Thinking before posting, priceless.
