Open a terminal window and type:
And hit Enter (over and over and over) to select all the default options. When it gets to the question asking if you want to type in your serial number, type No. It's not necessary.
That's about it. I think you have to create some symbolic links as well. To do this type:
sudo cp /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
Now try it. Type "vmware" and press enter. If it works, sweet! If not, let us know what it says.
sudo cp /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0
