I am also in the process of setting up a CentOS 5 box to run VMware server.

I was looking around on the web and found some posts(can't remember 
where) regarding VMware Server running on Linux and problems with 
"pdflush".  Essentially the issue was there were claims that in this 
configuration "pdflush" starts pegging the systems CPU and makes the 
performance pretty miserable. 

Anyone seen this or does this sound familiar?

Thanks in advance,
