Angry Installation and running VMware Player

I beleive that I have installed VMware Player 1.01-19317. In the terminal it runs through all the scripts and stops at the end of the Licence agreement. I close the terminal but can not find the programme. I have tried to go to the Run Command and entered vmplayer but nothing.

Am I missing something? Could someone advise me as to how to proceed.

I am running SUSE 10.

Thank for any help. I am a novice so please be explicit in your instructions. Thanks.

Didn't you typed something like "accept" or "agree" or "yes"?

The idea is for you to actually read the license agreement, you scroll down and at the bottom it asks you to accept it. Should you have enter held down here it'll read that as you not accepting it and it'll quit the installer.

Here is my explicit instruction: read what is on your screen...

Thanks to cs-cam and linux.ta.gz. OK I can be stupid on occassion. However, I have read the licenmse agreement by pressiong the Enter button until 100% is reached and this is the last line i get...
/usr/share/doc/vmware/EULA lines 150-202/202 (END)
There is no prompt to allow me to agree. I have run the set up script several times but get the same line.

At the expence of being seen as the dummiest Linux user, could one of you help further.

It works like the man pages. Just press "q" on your keyboard to quit and it'll ask you if you agree. Simple solution
