SXCE B70 & Vmware?

I eagerly downloaded build 70 of SXCE last night. I've been curious to try out the new installer I've been hearing about for some time.

Good news: the install was as easy as I could have hoped. It's pretty, not ugly motif, seems to work well, didn't ask me inane questions.

Bad news: first, it was slow. 1+ hour. Second, I installed this into VMWare fusion with a 20gb disk and 1gb ram allocated. Install went fine, but now I can't actually boot the thing! I get the GRUB screen, then nothing - just a blank console with a blinking cursor. Bummer.

Edit: Rumor here is that there's a bug in SXDE, I'll post as soon as I find out if it's fixed.

Thanks, but sadly the screenshots you have, though cool, don't help me get going. There may be some bug on the Mac, but my VM is just hung on after rebooting from the installer.
