Hi I followed the guide for the VMware Server install on Ubuntu LTS. I was already using Ubuntu LTS as a desktop - so I just used that - I din't do a Ubuntu server install. The install went fine. I am able to install guest operating systems from CDs. Questions: 1) Using the web interface I am not able to change options. Do I have to create a root account to do this? I only have my user account that I use with sudo. 2) Maybe I'm being an idiot, but how do you get the downloaded virtual appliances to work? I downloaded a few - I figured it would be as simple as putting them in the default directory for VMs. This didn't work. Thank you!
