Installing VMware Server in Ubuntu 10.10

Inadvertently moved my mounted image to trash


What a stupid mistake i made… i accidentally moved my mounted image from my virtualbox to the trash without releasing it first.. i thought of creating a new name and a fake file so that i could release it this way but it appears that the virtualbox does not allow me to do so.

All in a days work… now i have to continue figuring out how to execute Warcraft III under VirtualBox as well as allowing USB to work in it. (sort of just moved from virtualbox-ose)
