installing VMware ESXi 5 Server on a Mac Mini

One of the things that I’ve learnt about VMware is how awesome our users are, and how willing they are to share their knowledge and expertise.  So it didn’t come as a surprise to me when I came across a detailed write-up of installing VMware ESXi 5 Server on a Mac Mini.  Anyone who’s familiar with our hardware compatibility guide knows that this isn’t a supported configuration, so you’re using this at your own risk.  But I know that there are folks out there who are willing to hack at things, so have fun with it — and I’m sure that the authors of that post would appreciate any tips or insights that you have if you give it a go.

As for me, I’ve been wondering about updating the Mac Mini that serves as my home server.  Is this enough to push me over the edge?
