    Slow Time with FreeBSD 6.1 guest on VMware Server 1.0.0 build-28343

      Hello,

       

      My FreeBSD 6.1 guest on VMware Server 1.0.0 build-28343 (Windows XP SP2 host) runs far too slowly.  I'm not seeing the sorts of kernel error messages I used to see with earlier versions of VMware Server and FreeBSD, but the time loss is incredible.  Time is probably running at half speed in the guest.

       

      I have talked to other people about this, one of whom is running ntpdate every 3 (!!) seconds to keep his VM from sliding too far behind.

       

      Has anyone encountered and overcome this problem?

       

      Thank you,

       

      Richard
