Installing Fedora Core 6 on VMWare Workstation 5.5

When installing Fedora Core 6 on my Windows VMware setup, it failed to find any disks to install on. The reason? I selected the Guest OS as “Red Hat Linux”, seeing as Fedora Core has direct lineaege from Red Hat. Anyway, it doesn’t work and fails to find a disk. To get around this, choose “Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4” or “Other Linux 2.6.x kernel” and it’ll find the Virtual SCSI disk perfectly.
