Hi. I have tried to avoid top posting, so sorry in advance if the below is
not the correct way to do things, I did check the mailing list netiquette.
This is the only list i'm on that has rules about top-posting which i no is
no excuse but guess i need to get used to doing things this way.

> "Running that with VMWare should set up a buildserver"

I have downloaded and installed vmware server.
I have also downloaded the rockbox virtual server and extracted its files.
I am going to the vmware server console, and am going to the option called
local host. I have tried the option open a virtual machine, and also I
looked at the import option but neither option gave me the option to open
any of the files that were in the build server archive that i downloaded.
So what am I doing wrong?
Also as I have never run vmware before if it did turn out that my machine
wasn't meeting your standards for compiling builds, would I be notified and
asked to shut myself down? as i'd hate to slow the build process down.
Sorry for all the questions, looks like i'm the newbie on the block.
