VMWare Fusion v1.0 (51384) Mac OS X 10.5.1 PC-BSD 1.4 All went as expected. VMWare Fusion even survived the OS migration from 10.4 to 10.5. My only suggestions at this point would be... * Try another OS as a guest, see if you get similar results * Re-install VMWare Fusion * Check the VMWare forums for similar issues. * Purchase the latest Fusion version Hope that helps... -- Regards, Doug _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
