Starting VmWare?

I have a copy of VmWare on my computer; it is unpacked, I ran and set it up properly, but I im in a bit of a pickle now: I don't know how to start the workstation! I read their site where it says you type "vmware &" but that was useless. So, could someone please point me in the right direction? Their instructions give pretty self explanatory instructions with the exception of this...

If your install finished properly, then running lsmod | grep '^vm' should return vmnet & vmmon. I can run /usr/bin/vmware and it starts properly - what error message are you seeing?
