To install is as easy as starting the Install/Upgrade and on your console:

yum -y install perl
mkdir /mnt/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz /root
umount /mnt/cdrom
cd /root
tar -zxf /tmp/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz
cd vmware-tools-distrib
vmware-install.pl –default

BAM! Done!
