Just attempted to install Fedora 10 under VMWare Server 1.0.4 on Windows.
I chose the default “Other Linux 2.6.x” VM option, leaving the defaults except for configuring the VM’s CD to be an iso image of the Fedora Live CD.
Man was it slow…
I traced the problem to lack of RAM available to the VM. 256 is simply not enough to run the Live CD/Install with acceptable performance.
After upping the available RAM in the VM to 1024 it’s now installing OK.
