I’ve found a tutorial that explain how to "create" VMware images without the VMware Workstation… Only with the VMware Player !!!! Funny no ??
"VMware Player is the new free great tool released a few days ago by VMware.
It can be used to run virtual machines made with VMware Workstation, VMware GSX Server, and VMware ESX Server but it can’t create them."
