I am trying to install Solaris 10 on VMware WS 4.5.2 (running on a Windows XP machine).  Early in the installation process I am getting an error that says "no SOF interrupts have been received, this USB UHCI host controller is unusable".  I am running a P4 2.8 Ghz on on Intel motherboard with a GB of ram.  I am a Solaris newbie, any ideas on how to work past this?

go to the VMWare settings for this virtual machine (with the solaris VM selected, on VMWare's menu bar select VM->Settings) and disable USB.  That should do it.
