    Nope.I get an rsync failure at about 70%.
    First time it happened I was away from my desk, so didn't see the message, it timeouts the error message and then shows "Installation complete".
    I spent twenty minutes scratching my head when it wouldn't boot the system after that, tried the install again and saw the message.there's nothing that I can find at the Linspire forums or FAQs regarding this problem, only a message on a board saying saomeone had tried doing the install from a magazine cd, and it din't work, so they complained to th mag, who said they'd only done the install on a clean disk, in native mode, not through VMware :(

    I did install Linspire/Lindows on VPC by Microsoft on a XP Pro workstation, it crash on VMWare and.. anyways it's so slow (on VPC), you don't want to install Lindows for any reason
