    I had a little difficulty both seeing your image and reading your post.

    But, there are many threads on this forum on the successful use of VM and BT2 or BT3. I have used all three successfully as well.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Are you talking about a Live install in VMWare or a LiveCD booting up in VMWare? If your LiveCD boots up fine in VM (as it should) then I suspect your problems are how you performed the Live install.

    I have Virtual Machines of both BT2 and BT3 in my VMWare. When I first started, getting it loaded as a Live install was a little difficult (and confusing) since I was not that proficient in Linux.

    I use this tutorial:

    It worked for both VM5 and VM6.
