Yes my friend i did install in xp the guest os but i can not install it in guest linux man.
If I understand your post correctly you did install Linux in a virtual machine that runs on Windows XP, right? Did you read the link I posted in post #20? That explains in very easy terms how to install the VMWare tools in a Linux guest operating system. If you want to, we can go through it step by step if you tell me what you have tried and where it has gone wrong.
Can you please let us know if you were able to get what you want? In other words, is your problem solved or still pending a solution? If it's solved please mark this thread as solved using the Thread tools. If it's not yet working please let us know what's failing.
To install VMware Tools in Linux:
Start your VM, go to VM menu, Install VM tools. That should mount an ISO as a CDROM.
In Linux, mount the cdrom, copy, extract and install tools.
A complete walk through is available on the net...just ask uncle google.
PS: As others mentioned, try to be specific when describing a problem...
