Not sure if anyone didn't know this but me...  It should be put next to 
similar information about using piperedir, etc on windows.

This is how to do it:

set vmware's serial port to
Pipe: /tmp/vmware.out
This end is server, other end is application
[x] Start connected

And use netpipes like this:
faucet 1666 --in --out hose -unix- /tmp/vmware.out --slave &

Boot reactos using gdb on vmware, wait for the loaded hal message.

The you can do:
gdb target remote localhost:1666

And everything should go smoothly.
