There is no more vmware-config.pl in Workstation or Player.
To install rpm, first remove it from inside YaST Software Management. Now open a root console and install with: rpm -Uhv VMpackagename.rpm where package name is the package. I find that after you cd to where you d/l it, it is easiest to simply type the first few letters and hit the Tab key to auto complete it. See the Topic here if you have any questions.
