How to Intsall Fedora Core 17 “Beefy Miracle” on VMware Workstation

What is Fedora Project:-
The Fedora Project is a global partnership of free software community members. The Fedora Project is sponsored by Red Hat, which invests in our infrastructure and resources to encourage collaboration and incubate innovative new technologies. Some of these technologies may later be integrated into Red Hat products. They are developed in Fedora and produced under a free and open source license from inception, so other free software communities and projects are free to study, adopt, and modify them.
Fedora 17 Accepted Features
Setup a system to close duplicate crash reports being submitted by ABRT in Red Hat Bugzilla. Extend ABRT to find duplicate reports before filing a new bug.
Update Boost to the upstream (latest) 1.48 release.
A grab-bag of little cleanups and improvements all related to session and seat handling.
Cloudstack is an mature, enterprise-grade, fault tolerant, multi-hyerpvisor, production-ready IaaS platform.
ICC profile support for printing. Color management will be applied to printed jobs at the rasterization step. This can lead to improved color fidelity in printed output.
Darkserver is a service written to help people finding details of build-id(s). This service will be integrated with the Fedora infrastructure and includes a web interface and koji plugin.
Enhancements to NetworkManager will support enterprise features like bonding, IP-over-Infiniband, VLAN, and likely bridging.
An open source middleware for High Performance Computing implementing the Grid RPC model.
The DNS Root zone was signed in July 15, 2010 and there are more than 20 TLDs signed via DNSSEC. Fedora will bring benefit of this important feature to the end users and their workstations.

An update of the GNOME desktop to the latest upstream release.
Enable use of kernel target (LIO) for iSCSI and FCoE.

Here I am going to cover steps to install Fedora 17 on VMware workstation 8, as you know Fedora 17 is in Alpha Stage. So its not fully supported by VMware Workstation.
I have get lots of error while installing Fedora 17 on VMware workstation. Sometimes my GUI works & some times it won’t. Once I reboot my Fedora 17 VM forcefully to complete the Fedora 17 setup..
Still Graphical Interface of Fedora Core 17 is not working with VMware workstation, it might work with VMware workstation after releasing new Version or Patches.
