Well, thanks for the quick reply.
Yea, I share your concerns w/ asterisk in a virtual environment as well,
however, the only OS that I have had an issue running is anything CentOS
based. I have Ubuntu, gentoo, and m$ products running perfectly fine on the
machine, right now.
Honestly, I can't afford to plunk down the cash to VMWare so, if I can't
figure out the issue, I will be forced to just not use anything CentOS
For now, I just grabbed another random PC and installed my asterisknow
server on it.
