I just found Linux Mint today and I'm incredibly excited about it. The only problem is when I try to install it on VMWare (Latest version, Windows xp host). When the live CD begins I can view the boot menu (start, compatibility mode, etc.) but when I choose either option to start it just says "Loading..." and seems to lock up. I've given it over 30 minutes and 512MB memory, so I doubt it's just a slow boot. I've tried creating both Ubuntu and Other 2.6.x kernel options in VMWare, neither have helped. So, does anyone have an idea on how to solve this problem? I'm at a loss =/
EDIT: First post and I've already posted in the wrong forum? Sorry, could a mod move this to the correct section?

Speaking of that I noticed one of Mint's background's is an Apophysis fractal. I would be happy to make a background for it fractal wise.) I did try booting Mint on my actual computer and the same thing happened. I burned the iso at a lower speed, double checked the md5, and still nothing seems to be working. Could there be a problem with Dual Core computers? I've had that pop up before when I was installing Ubuntu a while ago.
