    VmWare help please!!


    I am dual booting Suse8 and Win XP. I am in linux and trying to get vmware to work. My boot loader (Lilo) is on a floppy disk. When I try and run the virtual machine, it will not work. It tries to start grub (I don't know why) and then says 'Geom Error' and then stops. What is going on here? Is there a way to get the virtual machine to recogninze the boot loader on my floppy? Do I have to have a boot loader on my hard drive for this to work?

    You should be able to boot on a floppy in vmware... but you have to enable floppy in vmware and the bootorder there to. But the easiest is to have the bootloader on the vmware virtual disk.
