Whilst downloading the SLES 10 DVD ISO for our Altix box Just In Case (we want to upgrade to PP5 for the cpuset support) I noticed that Novell also have a VMWare image of SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, aka SLED.
Good deal, it's huge but the tubes here are pretty big so it came down in almost no time. I didn't have time to fire it up til today.
Boo SuSE, the default NIC in the image is bridged, and the default root password is "root". Hiss boo.
The gecko is pretty cute in a set of samurai armour though.
I think more OS vendors should do things like this. If nothing else, I'm sure the vmware image is a boon to their helpdesk - I'm wondering if that's who developed it originally anyway.
