    with VMware you need to use bridged networking.

    Thanks the the VMDK link, worked straight away.

    Used: workstation 7
    created new VM - linux 32 bit - 2.6 kernel
    256mb
    bridged networking

    don't let it boot and edit settings, removed drive,
    added new drive by pointing to VMDK and off you go.

    The hardcore linux fans wont like this!

    I'm told it needs an internet connection on boot, so bridged mode is probably best and give it as much RAM / CPU as you can.

    Did you get it to work?? I'm still getting a blank screen

    I don't think google have thought that far or they don't see a need for proxies as it's an os which is effectively out on the cloud

    from first impressions it's not going to conqure the desktop or every day use market - only place to contend is netbooks and that's only of use there if you have a 3G built in.
