but I never tried it myself, I go with Werner's advice :-)
To install the Vmware tools does require some Unix-knowledge now and then,
because it does not compile the modules most of the times I tried it.
I install the "basic" built environment with:
aptitude install module-assistant
[hit ENTER two or three times]
That installs more than the required stuff, but it's easy to remember.
