problem finding vmware after install..


I've installed vmware server on fedora 8, using the rpm package from the vmware website, install went without a problem, but after installed, there's no icon on the desktop or under any menu, but I open the add remove program and it's showing as installed...how could I get the app started?


thanks

You probably have to open up a terminal and type vmware-config.pl or something. Just start typing vmware and then hit tab and see if something like that comes up. You have to configure the program before you run it.
