    Place it in /etc/rc.d/boot.local

    On SuSE you don't use sudo so you can simply put the mv statement there as you'll be running with root privileges during the script execution anyway.

    wouldn't it be better to actually fix your issue with vmware instead of working around it by doing something every boot?

    there seems to be an issue with you vmware installation or a conflict with another vmware product (wmwareplayer perhaps?)

    this helped for me (although i was on debian at the time)

    purge actual vmware init scripts:
    # update-rc.d -f vmware remove

    reinsert init scripts at the very end of init process:
    # update-rc.d vmware defaults 99

    BTW.... At least on this forum i got responses... which on the
    Ubuntu forum NEVER happened at all.... which is another reason
    for me to be switching to Suse which has been downloading for
    HOURS...Phew!! Over 4 gigs!

    Thanks Again!
