That is the problem, as the file is 2.2GB.  

-rw------- 1 sage sage 2.2G 2007-11-07 09:52 Ubuntu.vmdk

I think it's supposed to be easy (and sometimes very desirable)
to convert a filesystem in Windows from FAT32 to NTFS.  This
will make the filesystem journaled, which means the person won't
see the "checking the file system" blue screen whenever Windows
crashes and reboots.     

That said -- vmware has an option to split virtual disks into files
that are all < 2GB.  I will definitely fix the vmware machine when
i get back to Seattle to only include files that are < 2GB. However,
this will have to wait about a week.

This is ticket #1157  - see

William: you can convert the image using vdiskmanager. There is even a
GUI for OSX to do that - see
- that way I don't have to upload the images to sagemath. I am not
sure why I got this ticket assigned, but now the ball is back in your
court ;)
