With the help install "PET" on the desktop.
Open the console to place you in my-documents

# cd /root/my-documents (Leads you to the directory)

if [ ! -f ./vmware-install.pl.bak ]; then
cp ./vmware-install.pl ./vmware-install.pl.bak

if [ ! -f ./bin/vmware-config.pl.bak ]; then
cp ./bin/vmware-config.pl ./bin/vmware-config.pl.bak

#Fix ./vmware-install.pl
echo -e "\nPatching files..."
diskFree=`df | grep /initrd/mnt/dev_save | gawk '{ print $4 }'`

Hey - thanks for the instructions! I'm having a bit of problem with it though - the install seemed to go ok, but I did stop at the point where it asked me if I wanted to create a package - I said no since I didn't think I needed it. Is that required to get this working properly?

What I'm getting now when I try and play my vmx is this:

#vmplayer "Windows XP Professional.vmx"
process 6559: Attempt to remove filter function 0xb6045fd0 user data 0x82445a8, but no such filter has been added.
