Help folks! I'm running VMWare 7.0.1 with Backtrack 4 Beta - and I can't figure out how to install the vmware tools.

All the tutorials say that once your backtrack is up and running and you click on VM-->Install VMWare Tools, that "You should see a mounted CD image show up on the desktop. In the File Browser that pops up, right-click the VMwareTools*.tar.gz file and extract to the Desktop. "

I'm not sure what I'm looking for, but I'm not seeing any kind of CD image or folder popup with the tar. file.

I've been trying to follow this tutorial:

I'm assuming that the CD image did not mount because I did not see any image of a CD show up, etc, so I went ahead and tried typing: sudo mkdir /media/cdrom - now I'm getting the error 'mkdir: cannot create directory 'media/cdrom': No such file or directory found

I feel like I'm missing something huge - can someone help me out??

I created backtrack four as in this tutorial:
