You have to change the file path to whatever you're using, so you probably downloaded the file into something like

to the location you downloaded the VMware file, and then run
tar xfvz VMware-server-1.0.4-56528.tar.gz

Great Cameron! thks...got it to launch, unfortunately I have not been successful in installing some of the other linux OS, i.e. suse 10.3 and fedora 8.0....I am able to create the partition, but once the software loads up, I get either stuck. i.e. suse10.3 try the install in text mode, but once I get to the part create partition or create partition folder it just goes in a circle. In Fedora 8 I can't navigate down to select text mode. any suggestions, I tried the patch but the link leads to nowhere. ave you been successful with installing another linux OS and which one. thanks again!!
