Below is a quick tutorial on how to get Back|Track 5 R1 VMWare Tools installed. This was tested on OSX Fusion. Open up a terminal window: tar -zxvf VMwareTools* cd vmware-tools-distrib perl Select defaults, it will complain that it cannot find the linux C headers. Point the directory to /usr/src/linux/include. Everything should now compile properly.
