For what it's worth, I installed GNU Radio on CentOS 4 under VMWare.  I
successfully built it but (from by experience and from subsequent
reading of the VMWare documentation) it doesn't support recording from a
microphone connected to the sound card.

If you've got a USRP, that may not be a problem for you.  However, if,
like me, you're hoping to use a scanner to connect via the sound card,
VMWare won't work for you.  (Alternatively, later versions of VMWare may
support the microphone.  I was using a Beta of v2.)

In the end, I found it was trivial to install Ubuntu (Gutsy) for
dual-booting with my Windows XP system.  This was definitely the easiest
way to get everything working.  (I'd previously used the Cygwin
installation method but the performance had been unacceptably poor.)
