    That link no longer works. What exactly did you comment out?

    Here's what I do an so far it's worked every time..

    sudo aptitude update
    sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    cd /cdrom
    cp -a /media/cdrom/VMwareTools* /tmp/
    cd /tmp/
    tar -vxzf VMwareTools*.gz
    cd vmware-tools-distrib/
    sudo ./vmware-install.pl

    tested on 7.04, 8.04, 8.10 (was kinda buggy), and now 9.01, and 9.04
