openSUSE VMware tools vSphere 5

I just installed openSUSE 11.4 in vSphere 5 and wanted to use the latest tools. openSUSE comes with open source tools but that just isn't going to work for me. Here are some steps to get it done:

Install some applications prior to installing the tools
zypper install gcc make kernel-devel kernel-syms
Once this is complete you can mount the tools DVD and then drag it to the desktop, unzip, then execute the installer to install everything. This should work as it took me 5 tries to get everything installed.
