VMWare Fusion VMs Work on Thinkpad Player

Kept reading on VMWare and found that creating VMs on the iMac using VMWare Fusion then using VMWare Player on my laptop to play them was supported. Tried it and it does work - great. Not sure if my original problem was Fusion V1 vs. V2 or an error on my part when copying from iMac to Thinkpad. Anyway, progress ...

Also found a script that lets you clone VMs. It doesn't work on Fusion (VMs are OS X packages of some sort, not a directory) but it showed me where to rename things and edit names inside files ... which is great. I now have a core Kubuntu 8.04.1 that I can clone and rename for other purpose (e.g. a netbeans VM).
