    I too had that problem. I popped open another terminal window and created a bunch of links to mimic the actual directories to rc scripts; however, I still ran into a problem when the monitor module for vmware failed to compile later. I will be playing with this more as well. Good luck, and if you figure out how to install vmware player or server on bt2 while it is installed on a hd please pass it on!

    What type of setup do you have???

    This is mine bellow and this is the problem I an getting......

    I isntalled BT2 one my vmware sever on a xp machine, hd install, but now it is not seeing my built in bcm 4318 card. If I boot the pc from the cd then it sees it. Is there something else I have to do here, I know this is not the same problem but it is vmware server and bt2 related.
    A wise man ask questions, A fool is afraid of knowledge!!

    hi guys!

    i have bt2 final on my laptop running as hdd-installed system. I tried to install on bt2 the vmwareplayer. There are some problems to solve:

    1. at some question you were asked:
    What is the Directory that contains The init Directories (rc0.d/ to rc6.d)?

    The thing is you have to make some commands before your installation-procedure. (found in another post here, thx to cyberchor):

    Create soft links of rc.d folders for various runlevels as expected by the vmware installation script.

    for x in 0 1 2 3 4 5 6
    do
    ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc$x.d
    done

    then start the installation and continue with the default-answers.

    2. this problem is at the moment unsolved for me:

    Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

    None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Player is suitable for your
    running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
    your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] yes

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel?
    [/lib/modules/2.6.20-BT-PwnSauce-NOSMP/build/include] /lib/modules/2.6.20-BT-PwnSauce-NOSMP/build/include
    ...
    then some time later he aborts with failures :-(

    maybe someone can help to create the vmmon module for my running kernel?

    thx,
    hackbert

    Just make the missing dirs:
    mkdir /etc/runlevels/rc0.d
    mkdir /etc/runlevels/rc1.d
    mkdir /etc......

    then just tell the installation to look in /etc/runlevels
