Fast CPU Util on Netware Virtual Machine

Running VMWare Server 1.0.5
Host: Linux CentOS 5.1

Cloned Netware 6.5 SP5 server using Portlock Storage manager into a virtual machine.

Had issue that vmware-vmx was always at 100%+ on CPU utilization even when server was not doing anything. This is even after installing vmware tools.

Changed settings of virtual machine from 2 processors to 1 and this solved the problem.
