Hello all.

I saw several posts about problems creating VM machine running m0n0 when
having 'only' .img file (like CF once). I must admit: I've spend some
quality time trying to solve this issue (...) with some results:)



All you have to do is:

   1. Download alternate VM mounting utility:
   http://chitchat.at.infoseek.co.jp/vmware/vdk.html
   2. Create VM (IDE) HDD.
   3. Mount this file using VDK.
   4. Physdiskwrite it.



And here you go! It should smoothly load :).

HTH
