Yea, when your up in bash, just hit the 'install vmware tools' in the pull down menu, and it inserts a fake floppy disk in.
After that mount the floppy, copy all contents out of it, you may or may not have to gunzip/tar it, then run the .sh to install everything correctly.
However, the default tools only support Xfree 3* if you want 4.* support you will need to download them from vmware's site. And you can do that in bash as well. Lynx.
