There is a payoff, however. One of the most useful features of VmwAROS is file sharing with the host operating system, and this is done using YAFS, a simple but good FTP server. The problem here is that YAFS requires the IP address of the AROS machine being specified in its configuration file. And, if you have ever launched ConfigIP at least once, you'll surely have noticed it. With DHCP I don't know exactly how to bring this information to YAFS, so for now it will be automatically didsabled at startup when DHCP is selected. Users which want to use YAFS and DHCP at the same time, will be required to launch ifconfig -a and properly edit yafs.ini before starting it in a shell.
Here's a screenshot of a work-in-progress VmwAROS version with DHCP running.
PS: I would like to thank Alain also for having helped me fixing the Theme Manager in order to make it work again in VmwAROS, since on the latest AROS builds it has some problems.
