    Yes... it is possible that some devices that won't work with Linux will
    work under a Windows guest running under VMware on a Linux host.

    I have a P-Touch label printer (for example) which requires drivers
    that are only in Windows. It works fine from a virtualized Windows
    XP.

    However, in general, the answer is "no"... only because there are
    a LOT of piecs of hardware that connect via USB, and USB pass
    through sometimes isn't available. I hear that newer versions
    of VMware might be better though... so it "might" work.

    I have trouble compiling vmon. It says that I have gcc 4.3 and that kernel was compiled with 4.3.1. and default option is [no] (to compile module).
    When I say yes, it gives error in make.

    My kernel (and source) is 2.6.25.18-0.2-pae (downloaded/updated from yast)
    gcc is latest (from yast)

    any help?
