Ok, I saw this problem too... Make sure you load the right cd-rom device, vmtools, load as a cd-rom in the virtual machine. If you have a cd-writer, I think you must choose cd-rom (RAW). Also, make sure you have the last version of VmWare, I know some old version have some problem loading vmtool.
I have tried VMware ver 3.1, I fibd marvelous
I can't tell you how much do I love it, I can now stop booting to win98 I have everything at hand.
As for the tools, you can install them easily I had no problem with them at all.
But I still have one bug, I cant hear any sound from windows ( using vmware from linux ) can someone tell us how to fix this.
There is no problem installing VM Tools when W98 installation is on a virtual disk. But when i use an existing W98 installation, VM Tools won't install.
The version of the linux disribution and vmware itself has nothing to do with this as long as it is all working with no errors, i think.
