Yeah, I would prefer using VMWare on guest operating systems, since it's more efficient towards installing expansion packs such as VMware Tools.
Thanks! Problem is I am on a iMac and cannot use VMware player.
Oh. :(

As a person who never tested out virtual machines on a Macintosh computer (even for one that Mac OS X), I don't have that much luck for you. Maybe you could install Windows 7 or something, and then you could install VMWare on that OS. I think that's what other people did with some of their virtual machines.

Im gonna try running VMware player inside of a Virtual Machine of Windows 7 hoping it will work since Im no longer using VirtualBox! :|

Hopefully, it would work on a Windows VM. I wish you good luck.

Hey Epan! What version of VirtualBox are you using? I heard these drivers only work on VirtualBox 4.3 or older.

Can you upload a VHD of Windows 95, 98 or ME? Since you clearly got it to work in your tutorial? I feel so bad asking for this :P

Windows 95, and Windows ME this will probably help lots of people who are having issues with the drivers. Thanks a lot man!
