[CentOS] VMware (was Re: current bind version)

I have always had issues with VMware server and compiling of kernel
modules, normally ended up costing a couple of days effort .. I have
found 2 is more resource intensive than 1. Rather use ESXi 4.1 and get
up and running quickly. If your hardware is not on the supported list
there are other lists of tested hardware where people have it running on
"Unsupported" hardware.

Player is not a solution if the Virtual machine needs to be running
24/7. It's more suited to testing and demo use.

You may want to try VMware-player if you, (like almost everyone else)
preferred 1.x to 2.x.   The later versions of player are more like 1.x,
allowing you to install an operating system from ISO or whatever, and
work quite well with 64 bit CentOS.
