I don't know either. The most recent any-any patch I've been able to
find was 117. It was probably suitable for F10.

The reason I want to get VMware Server up and running ASAP is Rob Lee's
new SIFT 2.0 forensics package. Looks like a "must have" for anybody in
the security biz.

In the mean time I guess I'm between a rock and a hard place. F13 would
be a natural host, but it's still beta so VMware won't even look at it.
I was hoping one of the F13 kernel guys spotted my post and remembered
something. Oh well.....
