Which version did you try? I tried the VMware version and the stick version. But none worked.

I tried the VMware version, it didn't work for me either, it said it installed VMware tools for linux but I couldn't get past the initial network screen.

I haven't played much with it after that.

Well, it seems you have to add this line,

Code:
ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"
at the bottom of the .vmx file when opened in notepad.

Got it to work, but I'm not that impressed so far.
