[Discuss] a virtual challenge..

As it turns out... I figured it out... I plugged away at the device 
manager updating drivers to what looked like generic windows drivers for 
various devices and then had to configure the VMWare disk as an IDE 
disk, and not a SCSI disk as it does by default.

This was kind of an odd one off question. Sorry..

Cheers. Steve.
