Unhappy Solaris10 x86 using VMWare?

Hello!

I'm trying to get Solaris10 x86 running via VMWare (workstation5) on Linux FC3 platform.

Solaris installed OK and then installed cluster patches from SUN.

Downloaded and installed NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-1.0-7664.run OK. Problem is identifying the nvidia PCI card within vmware in order to do "update_drv" command. Here's the output of "scanpci" command :-

Am I trying something impossible here?

Has anyone got nvidia graphics working for Solaris within vmware?

Thanks,
