    Each time I start VMWare Fusion 3.0.2 it will ask me to type in my password. How can I turn that off so that when I click the "Start Up" button it will go straight to booting without asking me for password?

    I assume that you're using VMware with a Boot Camp partition. If that's the case, there's no way around the password prompt as VMware needs administrator permission to unmount the disk and use it for itself.

    Yes, with a BootCamp partition... darn, so there's really no way around it?

    Found this in the VMWare forums, but I've never tried it myself.
