    Have you checked this http://www.vmware.com/support/ws4/do..._tools_ws.html? You said
    everything on my desktop just disappeared!!!(and the task bar...)
    . If the Knoppix desktop & KDE taskbar disappeared then you are not installing the tools properly. You need to install VMWare tools for linux in a text mode & not in a graphical dekstop mode. Check the link I provided.
    I hope this helps.

    Actually, I did run the installer in the KDE graphical desktop mode at first tme. but it worked.
    I saw a cd-rom icon appeared on the desktop, and some scripts in that new appeared drive. So after reading readme I run the scripts in the console.But it reported some errors, I just cant remember...
    later, I 'v found that newly installed vmware tool didnt work, so I tryed again(click the menu Item in the vmware menu). Uper things happened.....
    T_T.....

    I'll try again later, following the instructions from the link you posted.
    Thanks!!!
