"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Debian 3.1 is a very old version, I'd consider upgrading/migrating to a recent version. Current stable version is 8.1.
Oldest Debian supported to run on *ANY* vmware was v4.0
