I am sorry I can't solve your problem, because I am a fresh man for Condor.

Subject: [Condor-users] "vm_cdrom_files = a, b, c" : How does this work?
I have a pool of WIndows XP Condor pool PCs, which have VMware 1.0.6 installed.
I want to submit a condor job as a VMware image with a linux OS (ttyLinux).
I'd like to use this feature of "vm_cdrom_files = ...", but I don't understand how this works.
The manual says:
---- quote --------------
A CD-ROM for the virtual machine is composed of a set of files.
These files are specified in the submit description file
with a comma-separated list of file names.
vm_cdrom_files = a.txt,b.txt,c.txt
If these files are not on a shared file system visible to
the machine that will run the vm universe job, then
Condor must also be told to transfer them from
the submit machine with
vm_should_transfer_cdrom_files = YES
---- end-quote -------------
Basic questions I have are:
* How do I set up the configuration of the CD-Rom in the VMware virtual machine?
* Once the virtual linux system is up and running, how can it access the cdrom files?
Should it mount the CD-Rom? On the linux system, the boot message has:
hda: VMware Virtual IDE Hard Drive, ATA DISK drive
hdb: VMware Virtual IDE CDROM Drive, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
Should I then do "mount -t iso6990 /dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom" to access the condor cdrom files?
I've tried this, but it doesn't seem to work......
If condor wraps these files into an iso image (does it?), then how can I tell the VMware
configuration to use a not-yet-existing iso image for the CDrom???
