Virtual machine support
To test the demo, download the free VMWare player. Images have been tested with versions 3.0 up to 3.2. Place both .vmdk and .vmx file in the same directory. Start VMware and select 'open a virtual machine' from the file menu. The image will achquire a DCHP license and start a webserver that points to the embedded copy of the project sourcecode.
Nexus has been tested in both VMWare and Qemu. You can generate a distribution for either from source by selecting the appropriate option using make menuconfig.
To run Nexus 2009-12-XX in VMWare use the nexus-e1000.vmx configuration file. You have to update the location of the iso image using a text editor. Use VMWare Player 2.x with these versions if a newer player gives a black screen.
