How to enable copy paste option between Vista (host) and Fedora (Guest) on VMware


I've recently installed vmware and configured Fedora Virtual machine. I had a problem while changing the resolution (Have posted a query on the other thread).

I didn't find the xorg.conf file therefore wanted to add manually.

I find that the copy paste option is not available between the guest and host OS.

Could anyone help me how to do it...what options do I need to enable.

Any help in this regard is highly appreciable.
