That's just typical VMWare ... I remember they said they weren't going to support FreeBSD 4.x

Subject: Re: [m0n0wall] Mono vs ESX GSX

Hello,

I have worked a lot about M0n0 and ESX... (not tested yet GSX...) but you will be able to run only
version <= 1.2beta5 because VMware ESX don't support freeBSD 5.3 (or 5.4...).

I have asked them when they will support it, they said : "there is no plans at all to support
freebsd 5.x"...

;(

Bad news. So my project is now dead... thanks VMware...

(I was seriously thinking of using Xen instead, but freebsd/xen is for now moslty unsupported and
more or less unstable.... ;()...

/Xavier
