Last week we wrote about VirtualBSD, a pre-configured vmware appliance that can be used in VMware Workstation or the VMware Player.

If you want to use another window manager, for instance, or want to install a minimal installation, why not do create your own virtual FreeBSD in VMware?

This howto (ptankov.wordpress.com) shows step-by-step with screenshots how to install FreeBSD 7.1 on VMWare Workstation.

Thanks, Edmondas, for reporting.
