I am running VMWare Server 2 on a Dual core Vista Home Ultimate SP1 machine. The install went fine. I have UAC turned off, and also setup the Vista Administrator account.

I am trying to create a Ubuntu VM via an ISO. have also tried Puppy and Mint. I have set it up on a virtual drive, and I can get VMWare to start the machine up, but when I try and open up the viewing console it gives me the error
