I've installed Kubuntu 5.10 as a guest within VM Workstation. I have to next do the following:
"As root (su -), mount the VMware Tools virtual CD-ROM image, change to a working directory (for example, /tmp), uncompress the installer, then unmount the CD-ROM image"
How do I mount a CD once I'm in root? Then how do I untar a tar.gz file?
Here's a photo of my desktop:
