VMWare: How to install Linux Red Hat v8.0 on VMWare for Windows 
workstation v4.0.0? [FAIL CD5]
---
Steps: Overview:
 1. Create a Linux Red Hat 8.0 Virtual Machine
 2. Install Linux Red Hat 8.0 from CD1 and CD2
 3. When Red Hat restarts, you will see a black screen,
    where you only will be able to type some
    command line commands.
 4. Install VMware Tools Package in Virtual Machine

     -you must be in text mode in Red Hat
     -login as root (type 'su', then give root password)
     -click in VMWare menu->'file'->'install VMWare tools'
      and wait a while until the installation has finished
     -type:
       umount /mnt
     -type:
       mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
     -type:
       cd /tmp
     -type:
       tar zxf /mnt/vmware-linux-tools.tar.gz
     -type:
       cd vmware-tools-distrib
     -type:
       ./vmware-install.pl
     -answer the questions:
       Installing the content of the package:
       -In which directory do you want to install the binary files?
         [/usr/bin], press <ENTER> to accept this default
       -In which directory do you want to install the daemon files?
         [/usr/bin], press <ENTER> to accept this default
       -In which directory do you want to install the library files?
         [/usr/lib/vmware-tools], press <ENTER> to accept this default
       -The path "/usr/lib/vmware-tools" does not exist currently.
        This program is going to create it, including parent
        directories. Is this what you want?
        [yes], press <ENTER> to accept this default
       -In which directory do you want to install the documentation
        files?
         [/usr/share/doc/vmware-tools], press <ENTER> to accept this
         default
       -The path "/usr/share/doc/vmware-tools" does not exist
        currently.
        This program is going to create it, including parent
        directories. Is this what you want?
       -What is the directory that contains the init directories?
        (rc0.d/ to rc6.d)?
        [/etc/rc.d], press <ENTER> to accept this default
        -What is the directory that contains the init scripts?
        [/etc/rc.d/init.d], press <ENTER> to accept this default
        You should then see something like:
         Unmounting the Tools ISO image mnt.
         The installation of VMWare Tools 4.0.0 build-4460
         for Linux completed successfully.
         You can decide to remove this software from your
         system at any time by invoking the following command:
          "/usr/bin/vmware-uninstall-tools.pl"
         Before running VMWare Tools for the first time,
         you need to configure it by invoking the following
         command:
          "/usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl"
         Do you want this program to invoke the command for you
         now?
          [yes], press <ENTER> to accept this default
         After the configuration, you will see:
         You can now run VMWare Tools by invoking the following
         command:
          "/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox"
         during an XFree86 session.
 5. After the installation of VMWare Tools, by the above steps,
    restart your Linux in VMWare
 6. If everything goes allright, you should now see the
    graphical login screen of Red Hat v8.0, asking for
    your username (e.g. root, then type your root password)
    After which you can use your Linux Red Hat v8.0
 7. Note: possibly reduce the amount of memory assigned to this
    operating system via VMWare menu: 'Edit'->Memory->say 80
    megabyte, especially on Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    with 256 megabyte totally, or else your computer might
    become very slow when VMWare runs (you will have to power
    down you Linux in VMWare, before being able to change this
    memory amount, otherwise it is grayed out).
 8. Note: I received consistently a 'FAIL' on CD5, when I tested it
    with the Red Hat checksum program during installation in Red Hat).
    I downloadeded this CD5 from ftp.redhat.com (downloaded it twice,
    tested if these 2 images where equal, by running in MSDOS
      fc <first filename> <second filename>
    and they were found completely equal,
    and also burned it (in order to eliminate possible CD errors)
    on 3 different brandnew CD-RWs
    using Roxio's Basic CD Creator (I did not test another burner
    software program like Nero).
    I decided finally to leave it, as you only will use CD1 and CD2
    when installing.
