Greetings, all.

Rhapsody DR2 is crashing for me on boot in VMware Fusion v4.  It worked fine in v3, but in v4 it crashes on boot.  I note that I can boot into single user mode.  I'm guessing it has something to do with a driver, but I don't know how to manually configure drivers in DR2 from a command line.

Anybody have DR2 running in VMware Fusion 4, or have any ideas on how to get this working?  Thanks.

this may have no link with this, how much memory do you give to the vm ?

Let's see, ere's the config:
- 1 CPU
- 128MB RAM
- bridged network
- 2GB hard disk
- sound card is enabled
- no USB/bluetooth
- floppy disabled
- compatible with VMware Fusion 4 or higher

Hmm, maybe I'll try that last setting there.

Edit: nope, setting the compatibility to Fusion 2/3 does not help.  It panics on boot, and the options are to go into ROM monitor or to reboot.
