Thanks for the information but I already know and use VMWare 
Workstation.  With that, I CAN create my own VMs.  My question was very 
forcused and directed as I already chased the Windows links, over to the 
BitTorrent Tracker, but NONE of the .torrents being tracked there 
mention anything about BEING a VMWare image.  I was trying to save my 
bandwidth (and others doing the same thing) by asking if someone could 
clarify which of the .torrents was the advertised image rather than just 
downloading everything that isn't obviously a map set just to find the 
needle in the haystack.

So, can you tell me which one IS the actual image, or do I have to wait 
for my .torrent downloads to finish (yes, I queued up all of the non-map 
.torrents) to find out for myself.

PS.  Ok, the needle in a haystack was an exaggeration, but if you (or 
anyone else) want someone to try something, please consider making it 
obvious and not just throwing out "it exists, see if you can find it".
