What do you mean by "mini cd version"? Do you mean that your running it off a live CD?

Install it on the HD, click "Install VMware Tools" in the menu, mount the virtual CD-ROM drive (if it isn't done automatically) and then follow this guide, it should set you going: Installing VMware Tools on Linux, CLI (WS 5.5)

Thanks, and the mini cd is a smaller version. (Full -> 4.7 GB; Software, etc, Mini -> ~700 MB; GUI, Kernel, installer)
