problems running vmware
Your processor does not support the ^cpuid instruction. VMware Server will not
run on this system.
Your /proc/cpuinfo is:
processor : 0
vendor_id : User Mode Linux
model name : UML
mode : skas
host : Linux dallas.linode.com 22.214.171.124-1-bigmem #1 SMP Fri Apr 13
09:24:46 EDT 2007 i686

I'm assuming this has to do with the fact I'm trying to run a virtual machine inside a virtual machine
Has anyone ever run a VMWare on a Linode? I'm trying to run a Windows Vmware Image on a Linode, thats why I need VMWare.
It is a Very Bad Idea to do something like this, if it were possible.

Phew! Thank goodness this is not possible!
gcohen: VMWare requires a custom kernel module to be compiled into the kernel - since Linode kernels are all static (for good security reasons), this simply won't be possible.
Oh, and running a VM inside a VM will be excruciatingly slow, especially if it's a windows image.
