HOWTO/setup ReactOS sound with VMWare
From ReactOS
You need the following steps to activate experimental sound support with VMWare

Warning, these drivers installs hangs VM at the moment, so only for dev!

Edit the .vmx file and add these lines
sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.fileName = "-1"
sound.autodetect = "TRUE"
sound.virtualDev = "es1371"
sound.deviceNr = "-1"
sound.device = "/dev/dsp"
Download the WDM driver from [1] expand it and put it on a CD-image (The ROS install CD preferably)
Install ReactOS
After 3:rd reboot you will be asked to install the audio adapter, choose to install from the cd-image and folder you put the driver on.
Open the device manager and see that your adio adapter now is installed
Grab your favorite audio playback application. At the moment only tested Winamp < 3 (Winamp 2.91c) && VLC 0.9.8a is known to work
Load an mp3 file and play :)
