How to Update/Install VMWare Tools to an Ubuntu 8.x Virtual Machine

A new la entry has been added:

How to Update/Install VMWare Tools to an Ubuntu 8.x Virtual Machine

I have Ubuntu installed in several VMWare virtual machines. Every time they release a maintenance version I have to update the VM tools in Ubuntu. Its a royal pain because I have by this time forgotten how to do it. Hope others find this no brainer procedure useful.
