I am totally new to Linux. I have a MacBook Pro Intel 17" with Dual booth using Bootcamp (Mac/Win). I have been a Mac/Windows user and became very good at using both. Now, because of my job, I need to learn as much as I can and as fast as I can about Linux, specifically Ubuntu and later open Suse. So, I decided to target Ubuntu first. My first question is: What is the best way to run Ubuntu in a Mac? I decided to use VMware Fusion 2.0 since all resources I found in the internet were quite complex or needed some degree of understanding in "Linux" language and modisms, which I am totally new at. So, I ventured, I installed Ubuntu 8.10 and I was pretty successful, but now I am left to install VMware tools. I have no idea how to do it. I searched all over the internet. I have not been able to find anything to help me. I don't speak "Linux" but I am willing to learn. My second question is: Can anyone give me some light in how to install VMware tools in Ubuntu? This may well be the very first useful resource for newbies in installing Vmware tools and Ubuntu. I could not find anything simple enough to help me. Thanks!
