Has anyone been successful in running VMWare guests on a NSS volume under OES2?

I've tried the method described here:

Cool Solutions: Running VMware Server on a NSS partition with OES

But my VMs still wont start. I verified LUM is working, and modified the vmware-autd file.... it all looks good, it just doesn't work.

VMWare server 1.0.5
SLES 10SP1
OES2

Thanks!
