You talked about being able to switch between different VMWare
sessions using alt-F1 through F12.
You ought to try out XVNC and svncviewer--they make a *beautiful*
combination. As you may(or may not) know, X...can occasionally lack a
certain level of stability that servers require. svgalib is *far* more
stable than XFree86, though it isn't nearly as fast. What I'll generally
do on production servers that I still want to run X on is load up xvnc
sessions on the machine, then do a loopback svncviewer to the session of
choice. The best part is that I can run multiple, completely
independant(even different users!), highly stable, and acceptably fast
displays on one machine.
You can most probably load a VMWare session into xvnc, and view it
on any convenient machine or tty. Hope this helps!
Oh--biggest issue I had was with the mouse being
hypersensitive. Go into /etc/vga/libvga.config and disable as much mouse
acceleration content as you can.
