Top is showing 100 to 105 % CPU for the task on host and only less than
10% for vmware-vmx.

In the guest the Process Explorer is showing 98% CPU for the task.

And task is running sooo slowly there. Can I give more CPU to the guest
somehow?

Dont know if it helps, but VM server v2 lets you allocate processor/cores
per vm

How is VMServer2 today?
I rolled back to 1.09 after facing too much trouble with 2.
I also read in several occasions that I wasn't alone then.
It's a few months back so maybe it's got better?

Any issues?
