Fantastic! Installing ia32-libs did the trick!
Now if only I could work out how to make some folders on my amd64

system appear on the WinXP virtual machine (without dragging them)!
Thanks! Michael

Samba? Or you can use the shared folders option of vmware.

I had tried shared folders but came to the conclusion that for the
free vmplayer running in Debian and a WinXP image somebody gave me
that it wasn't supported. Are you saying otherwise since that would
be the best solution? I wish to see/manipulate [some of] my Debian
directories from the WinXP Virtrual Machine

Otherwise I'll look at Samba as you, and Carl, suggested.

Thanks, Michael
