    Found this article, great find, totally against the EULA, but for those of you who have wanted to do this for some time, now's your chance

    It doesnt sound like it works for everyone and there are some glitches, but i don't wonder i this couldnt be a base to try some other things

    worked fine for me though, pretty nice having another OSX system to test on :)

    Nice find Phoenix. Had to upgrade to VMWare Workstation 7 to get it working, but it seems pretty snazzy.

    Question though, I've never used a mac before, so have no idea what I'm doing. How do I get the sound working on the vm mac? The link indicates that you get one of the files from the download and run it, but i have no idea how to get it onto the mac, nor how to run it once its there.
