Haiku now running on my Dell 4550

Aparently there are Haiku VM images all ready to be started in VMware Server here. So, I downloaded the latest one, unzipped it (using unzip) and loaded the .vmdk and .vmx files into a folder called Haiku. Then i opened VMware Server and started up Haiku. Worked well.
Haiku, from what I've seen so far seems very limited. Up to now, I can't even get an internet connection and no significant apps seem to be available.
Note that the .vmdk file is only 100MB so it's not surpreising it's limited.
The latest BeOS .vmdk is over 300MB which, although still very small, shuld be a little more interesting.
