Thanks, Peter and Andrew.  I really appreciate the quick response.

The problem was the wrong hard disk format.  I recreated the partition 
on the hard disk.  Following that, I used the mkdosfs command and 
created a FAT32 file system.  I was able to write to the virtual drive 
without a problem.  VMWare is proving to be a great aid in developing an 
eCos application when the target hardware isn't available.

It's amazing how the little things can trip you up.

Thanks again for your support.
