Windows XP on CentOS with VMware

I installed Windows XP SP2 as a guest OS on a CentOS using VMware server the virtual machine software.

If you wonder why the windows have that OSX look , I'm using a gnome theme called "Glossy P".
The installation is pretty straightforward but it runs a little slow as expected, i was just trying to use the Net2phone dialer which runs only on windows (there are no plans to make a port for linux) and it worked fine, to get sound and microphone support with this software you need to add a sound adapter (the hardware must first work with CentOS) to the virtual machine in the settings at the VMware server console.

I used this How-to for ubuntu, most of the steps are the same .
