Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT vmware] Installing vmware-toolbox

Running gentoo in a vmware hosted on winxp.

I find I cannot install the vmware-tools becasue the install script
expects there to be directories with names like rc[0-9] and blows up
when they are not found.

I stumbled around in the script trying to make it work for gentoo but only
succeded in reaping piles of perl errors due to my clumsyness in perl.

I've posted the script here:

On the off chance someone is interested enough to look at it.
