Support the use of VMWare Workstation to testdrive Ubuntu ISOs

Registered by andypiper on 2010-02-24

Currently testdrive allows the use of kvm, VirtualBox or Parallels to run downloaded ISOs. It could also be enhanced to support the use of VMWare Workstation for those who have it installed.

Example implementation in bash - http://jumpgate.homelinux.net/random/td.sh

Using VMware it would be possible to run AMD64 images without VT-x/AMD-V, so it would be definitely a good idea.
