I've not tried it yet but do have my license and CDROM ready to go :). I didn't see anything about having to buy options but then, I've not read a lot about it yet either. So I guess at this point, GFS is no longer a part of any solution I may have been looking for so will have to post in the proper place, the ESX forums. 

Thanks for all of the input.
