Launch VMwareDid ya read the docs ? When pressing Install VMware tools while your virtual machine is launched and running, VMware will substitute your cd rom for an image. After pressing the Install VMware tools button, and confirming it, in Virtual mdk, do as root :
mount /cdrom ; cp /cdrom/vmware* /home/user ; cd /home/user ; tar -xvzf vmware* ; cd vmware* ; ./install.pl.
Docs are accessible in VMware by pressing HELP. VMware expect netscape to see the html help. IF you don't have netscape, just make a link to mozilla :
# ln -s /usr/bin/mozilla /usr/bin/netscape
The doc of VMware is extensive, especially in 4.X versions. It is in /usr/lib/vmware/help/ on your file system, if ya can't manage to launch it via the help button. Read it.
Hope that helps.
