Where can I get Vmware tools

Where can I manually download Vmware tools for my guest windows 98 os? I don't have the internet on my home pc, and so can't just use VM->Install Vmware tools. I have Vmware workstation 5.5 on a free trial.

VMWare tools are part of VMWare so they are already on your computer. In the manual there is a detailled description on how to install them in a guest OS.

Basically, when you use the option "install VMware tools", your Win98 will see a fake CD. The tools can be installed from this virual CD.
