Vmware Server - 2nd guest operating system - unable to open drive

Vmware Server 1.02
Trying to install a 2nd guest operating system (2003 standard), but keep getting
'unable to open drive E (cd rom) . Another virtual machine or application may be using this drive exclusively'
changed the settings so only this guest has exclusive access to it in config, but no difference.
Any ideas....first guest installed went great......

xsoldier,

This question refers to VMware; not OpenVMS. I suggest that it be relocated to a more appropriate location.
