Is the bt4 pre final fix still needed to install vmware workstation in BT4Final as documented here:

wget www .
tar jxpf bt4-vmware-workstation-patch.tar.bz2
chmod 755 vmware-6.5.2-modules-2.6.29-fix*
vmware-modconfig –console –install-all
more info here Installing VMWare Workstation 6.5.2 On BackTrack 4 - Remote Exploit Forums

or has that issue been resolved in bt4 final thus not needing the fix applied?

Also random Q for the mods, why do some forum textbox background's go black when active? I.E the "title" textbox when making a new thread goes entirely black thus is impossible to see what your typing when you click within the textbox to start typing.

firefox 3.5.7 here on xp :/
