VMware server 2.0.x on Ubuntu 9.04

I wanted to run a lot of host operating system on my AMD system and figure why not turn it into a VMware server for a little while so I can test all of the new system. Can't wait until I get my new T-105, I got a heck of a deal.

So I went to VMware and downloaded the latest version at the time 2.0.1 for my AMD 64 machine. I put it on the desktop and then here is how it all goes.

Untar the package.
tar -xzf VMware-server-2.0.1-156745.x86_64.tar.gz
The I went into the folder
cd vmware-server-distrib
Ran the installer
sudo ./vmware-install.pl
The installer begins and I left every answer to as the default (just pressed enter -- PLEASE READ what it is displaying on the screen, there is information there you will need.)

NOTES: If you just pressed enter every time and didn't write anything down there are some important cliff notes.

UNINSTALL - /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl
First Time Run - /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl
VMware machines - /var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines
Remote connections to use [902]
Port for standard http connections to use [8222]
Port for secure http (https) connections to use [8333]

Once Installed you can then manage the VMware server from Firefox.

Have fun, I am going to install FreeBSD, OpenSolaris and Oracle Linux now.
