Ok I am a newbie but coming along quickly to Linux and Trixbox.  I have created a Virtual Machine running a TrixBox.  To resolve an issue I am having , some timing issues, I need to install the Microsoft Virtual Machine Additions for Linux.  

So I logged into my Linux box as root, typed about every variation of Mount to get a CDROM mounted so I could install the Virtual Machine Additions.  Every time I type the mount command I end up with the system saying /mnt/cdrom or /media/cdrom does not exist.  It is correct in both of those directories are empty.  So how in the world do I get a CDROM to mount on Linux inside a Microsoft Virtual Machine that was installed by the TrixBox DVD ISO!

Yes thank you!!  I have tried everything in every which way but not like that one!  It worked and for those of you looking at this thread about how to get a TrixBox installed on Microsoft Virtual Server, here are the rest of the tips!

Yes thank you!!  I have tried everything in every which way but not like that one!  It worked and for those of you looking at this thread about how to get a Trixbox installed on Microsoft Virtual Server, here are the rest of the tips!
                 1)      You need to use SCSI hard drives in the virtual machine
                 2) Use the TrixBox DVD installer (accept defaults change your root password on install)
                 3) After or before Linux install in the virtual machine disable APIC and Power Management in the bios (again of virtual machine)
                 4) Once Trixbox comes up login and register the box
                 5) Login to TrixBox Linux console as root and type rm /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S09zaptel (say yes to deleting symbolic link and that is a zero in the name, for those newer to Linux than me it is case sensitive!!)
                 6) Edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst and add clock=pit nosmp noapic nolapic
                 7) Add the Virtual Machine Additions (use command above to mount cd) then
                            a. Type yum y install kernel-devel
                            b. Type yum  y install gcc
                            c. Type rpm ivh vmadd-full-RHEL*.rpm  --force  (this assumes you are in the directory with the vmadd-full-RHEL files, you can cd to the media directory to see the files.)

With these simple steps voice audio will sound prefect on a Trixbox in virtual land, for the record I found you can run without issue on 512MB of RAM for the virtual machine (not the host box).  I have the other set of directions if you need to add trunks to the Trixbox for broadvoice.com (entire different nightmare!)
