Now LSILogic work with just a small patch from Petr Vandrovec:

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux...+fusion+vmware

but in order to install current I have to put kernel with patched LSI
(or < 2.6.21 kernel) on current iso.

also using buslogic/ide when creating guest disk image converting later
to lsilogic is ok (change in vmx controller and vmdk controller +
geometry in case).
