    Download the "bundle" version instead of the rpm and simply run the
    downloaded bundle file as root: "sh whateverfilename.bundle"
    That will start a GUI installer.

    Just to add that you can easily install the rpm like I just did to
    upgrade from 2.5 to 2.5.1.

    Code:
    --------------------
    matt@Linux11:~> su
    Password:
    Linux11:/home/matt # cd /home/matt/downloads
    Linux11:/home/matt/downloads # rpm -Uhv VMware-Player-2.5.1-126130.x86_64.rpm
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    1:VMware-Player ########################################### [100%]
    Extracting VMware Installer...done.
    Installing VMware Installer 1.0

    Installing VMware Player 2.5.1

    Installation was successful

    --------------------

    You can uninstall it from YaST when you wish to upgrade.
    Make sure you remove the rpm if you installed from YaST however because
    it will not work.
