VMWare Server 2.0.2 XP drivers
Do VMWare publish drivers for the virtula hardware for XP?
I've just upgraded my VMWare Server from 2.0 to 2.0.2. Now when I try to install XP from RIS with the current images, I get the "image you have selected does not contain the necessary driver for your network adapter" message.
It looks like VMWare have changed the virtual hardware NIC. I can't find drivers on VMWare's site.

Fixed it. The answer was simple. On creating the new VM in VMWare Server, I was selecting Vista as the operating system to go on it. It was putting different hardware than it would for XP. I was then trying to install XP on it.
I was doing this because my intention was to upgrade to Vista then to 7. I don't have a bootable cliean install 7 DVD.
The answer is to just select XP as the original operating system.
Funny how your brain turns to mush under pressure.

Do you want one (Windows 7 bootable media etc)? If so you know where I am just ping me via Email and I'll sort you out.

John, you are a star!
I'm in the process of setting up a win 7 machine the hard way. Install XP by RIS, upgrade to Vista, upgrade to 7. I expect to end up with a messy OS that doesn't work quite right - the way they do after 2 upgrades.
