3. Restart your X session.To use the vmxnet driver, restart networking using the following commands:
/etc/init.d/networking stop

Linux版vmware toolの機能は何が含まれているのか把握していないが、仮想マシンとホストOS間で直接データの受け渡しができるようになったことからvmware-toolは正常にインストールされたのではないかと・・・
windows nt の頃 vmwareを使っていた頃はvmware-toolをインストールしなければネット接続不可や画面解像度もvgaのみだったのに対し、最近のvmwareはtoolを入れなくてもほとんどの機能が使えるようなのでよく出来てるなぁ~って感じです。
ubuntuへのインストールは簡単な模様 (*^_~*)
