Default Ubuntu under OSX & Fusion - 06-08-2009, 02:44 AM

Has anyone been successful in installing Ubuntu under OSX/Fusion 2 ?

I can't get Ubuntu to install; it just freezes every time I try.
I have no trouble installing Win7 under Fusion 2 on the same machine.

i had the same problem with dell supplied ubuntu from dvd. i switched to an ubuntu appliance downloaded from vmware. i found one that worked fine - however, the initial bootup time of the appliances seemed to be excessive. no identified reason for this.
