    Why are you using GSX? Why not its much newer, much more current replacement, VMware Server 2.x ?

    do the tools work or not work?

    what is the compatibility error?

      Because VMware Server 2.0 is beta. But yeah, the OP should be using VMware Server 1.0.4 at a minimum.

      To the OP: Show us an error message and maybe we can give you a reason why. Without an error message, we can only speculate and that's a waste of time.
