Installing VMware tools on Ubuntu

I know this is pretty easy, just wanted to take note just incase I forget how easy it is to do this.

sudo apt-get update  
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo mkdir /media/cdrom
sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
cp /media/cdrom/VMware*.tar.gz /tmp
sudo umount /media/cdrom
cd /tmp
tar xzvf VMware*.gz
cd vmware-tools-distrib/
sudo ./vmware-install.pl

When the installation scripts promps for answers, just hit Enter
