I like using VMWARE Player because it allows for directly opening the downloaded iso file when installing PC-BSD (very nice!).
Nothing is perfect however (yet) and final installation can have issues with screen resolution (post # 7 still applies)
Also VMWARE Tools do not install properly (see step 7) so a lot of extra work is needed to compile things.
Also VMWARE video driver does not get installed with VMWARE tools and more work is needed to get it
I propose that everything needed to support VMWARE player gets figured out in advance and included in iso installation file and have some GUI widget available to enable VMWARE support once PC-BSD is installed. This type of enhancement can improve users PC-BSD experience a lot when installing on a virtual machine.
