    Working method for BT3B

    Code:
    BT ~ # mkdir /etc/pam.d
    BT ~ # ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc0.d
    BT ~ # ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc1.d
    BT ~ # ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc2.d
    BT ~ # ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc3.d
    BT ~ # ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc4.d
    BT ~ # ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc5.d
    BT ~ # ln -s /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc6.d
    #next command is optional and only needed if the directory will not open when you select open.
    mkdir /mnt/hda
    VM -> Install Vmware Tools
    Click open copy VMwareTools.......tar.gz to /root/

    Code:
    tar zxvf VMwareTools......tar.gz
    cd VMwareTools.....
    ./vmware-install.pl
    #Follow on screen instructions (press enter A LOT)
    #Make sure you select your screen size.
    -credit pureh@te for letting me know this actually works & ND4SPD for providing the community with this info in the first place.

    This is the problem that I'm running into when trying to run VMWare Tools.
    Code:
    bt ~ # /usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl
    
    Stopping VMware Tools services in the virtual machine:
       Guest operating system daemon:                          [  OK  ]
    Trying to find a suitable vmmemctl module for your running kernel.
    
    None of the pre-built vmmemctl modules for VMware Tools is suitable for your
    running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmmemctl module
    for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)?
    [yes]
    
    Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.
    
    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build/include]
    
    Extracting the sources of the vmmemctl module.

    Hi, EdgeKrusher:
    I think the /mnt/hgfs already been mounted by read only.
    just check:
    BT ~ # mount
