OS works fine, but when i try to install vmware tools, it says...
"transaction failed: invalid path name component '/vmware tools/vmwaretools-6.0.1-55017.i386.rpm'"
Maybe a direction to start in - I saw something similar to this awhile back. Doesn't the tools install mount as a virtual cdrom on SUSE with just the single file? I think my box was getting confused with the real/physical cdrom I had. Granted I was running VMware Server 1.0.3 on a CentOS host with a SUSE guest.
And completely off topic - for anyone who has VMware Server 1.0.3 the upgrade to 1.0.4 fixed some major slow down problems.
