Installing VMWare Tools in BackTrack 5 R1

Below is a quick tutorial on how to get Back|Track 5 R1 VMWare Tools installed. This was tested on OSX Fusion. Open up a terminal window:

tar -zxvf VMwareTools*
cd vmware-tools-distrib
perl vmware-install.pl

Select defaults, it will complain that it cannot find the linux C headers. Point the directory to /usr/src/linux/include. Everything should now compile properly.
