Hi Daniël,

I run VMWare ESX 3.1 at work and VMServer at home. I know that VMWare 
controls all hardware and emulates  all hardware (CPU, memory, Disk) 
presented back to the VM. VMWare recommends not running applications 
like NTP (network time protocol) on a VM because it relies on CPU cycles 
and  VMWare server may decide to put that virtualized CPU to sleep at 
any moment. VMWare provided an alternative to NTP with their VMTools in 
order to sync time on VM's. I would venture to say you're going to have 
a very difficult time getting RT anything successfully running in a VM.
