CentOS 4/5 VMWare Guests

I pretty much will do anything to avoid running RHEL/CentOS on bare metal, but on guests it isn't so bad, because sometimes you have to choice:

Install and Configure VMWare Tools

# yum update
# yum install gcc
# yum install kernel-devel
# reboot
# vmware-config-tools.pl

Enable Time SYNC (you don't need X)

In your .vmx file (on the host obviously)

tools.syncTime = "TRUE"
