I started the install of Server 08 and it's brought up a windows asking for the drivers.  So, I browse to the cd where server 08 is the system re-scans, but can't find the driver?

Any help would be appreciated.

Wait to install the driver until the OS is finished, and then install the Virtual Machine Additions.

It's looking for drivers for the installation of Server 08 in the VM.  If I close the window, it cancels the installation of server 2008

What hardware devices are assigned to the VM?  Try just the hard drive on the IDE controller and CD-ROM drive.
