This tuorial will show you how to build a gOS Rocket virtual machine with VMware. An easy way to do this is to access a site to set up your .VMX by going to:
Here is a quote from the site:
Choose the Option for EasyVMX, the first option as it will allow you to create multiple virtual drives which will be valuable for training. The first option allows you to create a name for your virtual machine. For the GuestOS I usually select the Generic Linux 2.6.x and use with with any Linux distro and all works fine. Be sure to select multiple CPUs only if you have them as it will not work except with your real number of CPUs.
Enter a description of your virtual machine. The Network options allow you to use multiple network cards as well if you are going to use NAT, Network Address Translation, bridged or just one host. NAT provides a way of hiding the network of your connection and works easily. If you used bridged you will have to ensure that you have an IP Address for the network the host is on.. I always use the Intel network card as it has worked flawlessly.
If you have a floppy you can have ti detect the floppy. Your certainly want to set up the CDROM as you will need it to install gOS Rocket. Auto Detect works great. Select two hard drives so that you have the option to create drive space like you want. There are many different sizes which provide larger images. Make them SCSI drives by selecting that option.
Choose the sound, USB and ports that you want to use with the image.
