- Works with VMware Workstation >= 6.x and Player >= 2.x.
- Tested with VMware Player 2.5.
- VMwaretools are fully installed
  -> host system integration: copy&paste, cursor grabbing, Shared Folders...
- All files are smaller than 2 GB to be able to make a snapshot by packing them with zip.
- The system is prepared to share files with the host via:
  - Shared Folders of the VMware Workstation/Player.
  - Virtual network with SMBFS.
  - Virtual network with CIFS.
- To ensure a working network connection click on the network symbol in the upper right and
  disable and re-enable it. Make sure you see the orbiting blue balls indicating the
  automatical adaption of the guest to your host network. The VMware WS/Player has to be 
  connected in mode NAT. 
- If the host is online the system is ready for installation of new packages. 
  Just start the Synaptic Package Manager and press reload.
- For more information start the Firefox web browser. It has its
  start page pointed to the home page of this appliance at http://www.visoracle.com
  so that it is most convenient to get e.g. networking set up
  (you will have to copy and paste commands).

Documentation files
InstallDoc.txt - a description of how exactly this appliance has been installed.

Homepage with additional info: 
- How to get started and what packages may be useful to load.
- Some mini HowTos like e.g:
  How and why to set up SMBFS or CIFS instead of using Shared Folders.
  This is essential for Player 1.x users but because CIFS is the more
  functional way of sharing folders it is generally interesting.
- Other virtual machines to download.
