Hello everyone, I am a total VMware and Ubuntu noob, and I am stuck in a rather interesting mess.
I downloaded the Ubuntu 12.04 iso for my VMware Player 3. Here's what I did:Made a virtual machine with no ISO file, selected Linux (Ubuntu) (to install VMware tools).
VM starts up, as usual prompts me to download tools for ubuntu.
VMware tools get downloaded and installed without hiccups.
