Could you please help me out I'm a new user of VMWare?


VMware Workstation 5.5.3 Host OS WinXP SP2. Toshiba Laptop P4, ATI Radeon
9000 Graphics Card. RAM for VMware allocated 512 MB. DVD-RW/CDROM-RW Combo.


I install and update Fedora Core6 in VMware Workstation5.5.3 gest OS WinXP
successfully. I could not see any virtual CD or DVD ROM Drive in my Window
XP explorer. But a DVD drive which works fine in XP and VMware workstation.


When I click Install VMware Tools from Menue Bar in VMware Workstation it
does not start installation automatically. Then I click Computer Icon placed
on my desktop in VMware workstation and click on CDROM Icon. It open Folder
root/media/VMware Tools

Where I can see setup.exe and other files. When I click on setup.exe or
VMware Tools.msi I got this message.


Couldn't display "/media/VMware Tools/setup.exe".


I tried to run From my WInXP start-> Run-> G:/setup/setup.exe 

I got messeage "Please insert disk into drive G: Where G is DVD drive


Here I uncompresserd VMware Tools ISO image file in WinXP location is
"C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\VMwareTools\setup.exe"
