Well I could find Ubuntu there, but I found this page:
I modified it a bit, after it said cd /tmp/ and then cd vmware-tools-distrib it said directory not found, so I just extracted the tar.zg to the desktop and modified the cd command to /home/MPG/Desktop instead of /tmp/
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
cp -a /media/cdrom/VMwareTools* /tmp/
tar -vxzf VMwareTools*.gz
I can drag files into the VM and it captures the mouse.
I cannot drag out cuz it says the host doesnt support symbolic links, so I guess that's a Vista problem.
The screen rel does not resize like in Windows when I got from Windows to full screen, but I dont think the Linux tools does that!
UPDATE: About the symbolic links thing, I tried again a second and third time and it worked, so that only happened the first time, the second time it said the file existed (as I copied the file from my desktop into the VM, so copying the same file out to the same place will do that), the third time I renamed the file in the VM and dragged it out!
