My awesome journey with ubuntu express

A lot of people use linux on virtual machines and uses vmware for that purpose,to be able to copy data between host machine and guest machine vmware tools needed to be installed,here is the process on ubuntu server as well as ubuntu desktop.

In Ubuntu server(I am using ubuntu server 9.10)

log in as root

mkdir /media/CD
sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/CD
tar zxvf /media/cd/VMware-server-2.0.1-156745.x86_64.tar.gz
(After extraction in root's home directory a pl file will be present)

In ubuntu desktop the process is rather simple
