Would be nice if it worked... I just get a polite mail back, stating
"VMware evaluation licenses are valid for 30 days. After that 
evaluation period, you need to  purchase a full license to 
continue using the VMware software."  Maybe it only works if my license
is *really* expired (which is 2000-04-06).  Do you know more about
getting another evaluation license?  Could it possibly be related to
me refusing to accept any cookies?

What should it be good for? Where should I put the Etherboot ROM image?
In the virtual card's ROM socket?  I saw that option, but at the best it
might enable some Netware BOOT ROM which might be included in the BIOS
(which is no longer in a separate file - worse, I couldn't find it at all...)

Any updates on this subject are welcome...
