I'm having what may be a similar problem trying to run FC2 as a trial
guest under FC1 running VMWare v4.5.1-7568. I cannot get the VMware Tools
(needed for runlevel 5) to install under FC2 at runlevel 3. In another
virtual machine with Windows 2000 Pro as a guest, I had no problems with
VMware Tools installation.

Do I need to run your script on the FC2 guest (prelink-0.3.2-1)? Or on the
FC1 host (prelink-0.3.0-13)?
