VMWare ESXi 4 Hypervisor installation on Desktop board

Most desktop motherboard comes with Realtek network chip.  As the ESXi is not built for desktop board, Realtek chip was not supported.  ESXi 4 installation on most PC will fail.

To solve this problem, we need modification on the ISO in order to support desktop class NIC.  Here's the post on the procedure to modify the ISO:

Linux: Bash script to create a custom installation

On ESXi 5, support of Realtek chip is added.  No more hassle for testing VMWare ESXi on desktop PC.
