Thanks for your reply, Nicolas.
It is encouraging to see actual screen prints from a working configuration. I shall mush on.

How is VMWare easier? Let me count the ways. :) How about the fact that if you want something in the "Repository" (which it calls a Datastore), all you have to do is drag it there, or use the Upload button, which will open a dialog for you to go find the entity (folder/file). Contrast that with Oracle's idea, which REQUIRES that your file be on an FTP server that requires no password, or an HTTP server, and then has little or no error recovery when something goes wrong? How about the whole approach to networking, while we're here. How about Appliances? Even when you've completed the arduous task of getting a template into the Repository, you still have to clone that in order to create a virtual machine. You cannot use it directly, oh, no! With VMW Appliances, all you do is download them into the datastore, and press the Start button. Voila! Instant machine!
