Previously I documented installing VMware Workstation 6 Beta on my Thinkpad x60s. I decided to uninstall Workstation and install VMware Server 1.0.2.
The rest is found here
I should have used the vmware-uninstall.pl script but even without using it directly I managed to remove the old Workstation installation without real trouble.
Running Server on Ubuntu 6.10 (desktop) required me to add a few packages. I found Martti Kuparinen's installation guide very helpful. I had to add the following packages to ensure a smooth Server installation.
