Works fine. Building current SVN using VMWare 7 workstation on Windows
(using SLAX Live-CD as a host) as I type this (mainly to
test\experiment with instructions\hints for initramfs and systemd)

Only caveats to be aware of are making sure your eventual kernel
configuration (and selected host distribution) support the VM drivers
used for disk and networking by your VM system.
