Thanks for the great guide! VMware-tools integration is very important element for zeroshell.
Your guide definetly gives a step closer to fully vmware supported appliance. VMware-tools utilisation scripts are of course important elements, but I think that also the vmxnet module for network is the key element when using zeroshell in vmware virtualization. Making this work, may need to compile the driver in config procedure. So I am wondering is this also possible..
