Subject Re: VMware compatibility

I forgot about the VMware SDK. Yes, that also has to be updated.

Regarding the guest OS mappings: If the are not there, no matter what the
template is, the code will wind up always picking "Other" to send to
VMware. It's not really noticeable with Linux, but Windows templates will
have issues (at least that's our experience). Once the mappings are in
place, it will send the right guest OS type to VMware and the drivers etc
will be correct.
