Couldn't quite figure out the appliance thing but went ahead and installed Ubuntu from the downloaded .ISO file. A snap to install but can't figure out how to get VMWare tools running; all the blog/post recipes seem not to work well for me and I am hardly comfortable in the Terminal. Hopefully, VMWare will post a simple fix. The lack of Tools does not affect the basic operation of Ubuntu but does apparently affect resizing the windows, graphics resolution, etc. Any bright ideas, please post.

Interestingly, Windows XP under Fusion finds it hard to recognize when I access the internet via my USB modem, as opposed to my wireless. But Ubuntu recognizes both immediately without any futzing around. It's quite cool and I recommend checking it out for fun if you have some time.
