I am using feisty since it is available an had experienced no problems so far with my Turion notebook. Well... almost... to run vmware I must boot a self-compiled 2.6.18 kernel because vmware neither support the precompiled 2.6.19 kernel image nor a self-compiled 2.6.19 kernel.

Just by curiosity, is it a Compaq Presario? I'm wondering if you have the same laptop as me.

If so, how's the wireless detection? Is the new wireless stack in the kernel yet? It's changed name (used to be devicescape) but I can't remember what it's called now. (Oh well, driverloader still works like a charm - best 20$ I ever spent!)

usr0,

You may already know this, but I'll state it anyway. You don't have to roll your own custom configured kernel to run vmware. Once you have donwloaded the kernel sources and kernel headers from the Ubuntu repositories, you need to create a symbolic link from /usr/src/linux to your kernel source directory. The next step is less well known: create a link to your header files--e.g., in the case of the 2.6.19 kernel, you would do this (or something like it),"ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.19-386/include /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.19/include".
