    Did you install the VMware "addons" which provides the "vmware graphics controller"?

    Does your RHEL have X11 running or only in console mode (as most servers are left)? I have not attempted the stuff in Linux Journal, but hope to try it with a gentoo virtualbox that I have that is really for an appliance to see how it works sometime this week or it will be delayed until after Thanksgivings day due to work load.

    I might be able to setup a CentOS 5 on a virtualbox as well (depends on work load).
