I'm trying to get Slacko 5.4 working in VMWare 9, but it's not reading the virtual drive that is associated with it's VM... Any ideas/suggestions?

VMware Player, at least, will try to make a SCSI virtual drive for your VM, but it does not work for Puppy. You should remove that drive and create a new one that is set up as IDE.

Already did that. I have it set up as IDE from the setup because SCSI drives usually have issues in virtualization anyway... I'll try to redo the VM from scratch and see what happens...

I was told that this package could be used on any Puppy since 4.3.1 :
But not true, the package is aimed to a specific version of Slacko.
I look yr progress in the matter. and i will follow your step by step.
Bonne journée.

I just want to verify the same for VMWare Player 4.x. The SCSI option doesn't appear in Puppy 4.3.1 but IDE does.
