While I'm in this "if it moves, curse it" state of mind, I may as well

While I'm in this "if it moves, curse it" state of mind, I may as well give a shout out to vmware. I press ^L in less and it spends a minute repainting the screen: it's slower than windows telnet. I think the guest system may be running in some silly framebuffer mode, which is probably not helping.
More obviously silly is their decision to supply the vmware tools only as a fake cdrom, so that you can't install them in a guest that's running a live cd image, because it always installs the cd with the tools as the first cdrom device.
