comment Cisco NAC: help with enabling FTP or moving update files
Is this a typo for Cisco NAS, or are you actually running Cisco's Network Access Protection (NAP)? I'm trying to figure out if anyone in the world is actually running NAC.

comment Does VMWare Player 3.0 require Intel-VT capable processor
So you should definitely try VMware Player first, since that's supported on Windows 7. VMware Server is a product for servers, and isn't officially supported on client OS's, although it generally just worked on previous versions of Windows. Personally, after running Player for a little bit, Server for a year or so, and then Sun's VirtualBox for several months, I decided VMware Workstation was worth the price tag. I still discover new features.

From what I can find, Server 2.0 runs on a 64-bit Windows 7 host but some people have had problems with getting the network configured. Some people had problems with early Windows 7 betas. Network configuration can become complicated as you try more complicated things, since you're essentially creating an entire LAN inside your host that connects to the outside world via the single Ethernet card on your host. communities.vmware.com/thread/… communities.vmware.com/thread/…

comment Does VMWare Player 3.0 require Intel-VT capable processor
A VMware employee implicitly confirms that Player 3.0 does not require VT to run 32-bit guests. On Intel hardware, 64-bit guests DO require VT. See communities.vmware.com/thread/243265 Since Server 2003 is 32-bit with PAE (pretty sure), it should be ok. Older versions of the VMware Player guide specially say that Server 2003 is supported, and do mention that VT is required for 64-bit OS's. vmware.com/pdf/VMwarePlayerManual10.pdf
