    Unsupported guest OS and High CPU Usage

    sduensin Novice

      I have a machine with multiple Linux guests and one DOS guest.  Since there are no VMware Tools for DOS, that single VM is beating my CPU to death.  Can I modify the configuration to limit the CPU time available to the DOS VM?  Does VMware honor any of the ancient DOS multitasker "idle" notification tools?  I know the enterprise level VMware products offer this feature, but this is a server in my home that I'm playing with.  Hard to justify the $3k upgrade to VI.

       

      Thanks!   VMware is amazing stuff!
