    Default unable to start vmware running on BT3

    Hi
    I am not new to nlinux but having trouble starting vmware to configure a VM

    I tried to start vmware server but I get the following
    error message ...

    bt ~ # vmware
    vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
    for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:

    /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl.

    I am using ath0 to connect to the internet and when I do start /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl here is what I get

    Starting VMware services:
    Virtual machine monitor [ OK ]
    Virtual ethernet [ OK ]
    Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0 [FAILED]
    Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet2 [ OK ]
    Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet3 [ OK ]
    Host-only networking on /dev/vmnet8 (background) [ OK ]
    NAT service on /dev/vmnet8 [ OK ]

    The configuration of VMware Server 1.0.8 build-126538 for Linux for this
    running kernel completed successfully.

    ath0 is bridged to vmnet0 .....

    what is it that I am not doing right...

    Default

    I have got it working...

    All I have to do was to uninstall vmware by invoking vmware-uninstall.pl

    and install and define eth0 to bridge to vmnet0...
