i wanted to install pluto in my vmware (running on win xp home ed.). The installation from the iso-image cd worked, but if i want to boot pluto, then the boot process halts with the message "waiting for the /root filesystem" for about 5 minutes and fails.
Has anyone seen the same problem or found any solution?
Try using the ide emulation instead of scsi one on vmware. Also i think you should boot without the bootsplash since starting x11 may get the vesafb console unusable on vmware.
