There are two ways to install an RPM file. You can either install it from your file browser (konqueror, nautilus, etc.), or you can install it from the command line. Open a terminal, navigate to the folder with the VMWare RPM in it, and type "rpm -Uvh vmware_file.rpm" and see where that gets you.

If you are recieving an error message, please post it here, as well as any other relevant information.
