VMware Workstation 6.5 on Ubuntu 64-bit

I thought some people out there might want some directions on how to install VMware Workstation on an Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit system. Also since it doesn't use a apt-get to install.

VMware Workstation 6.5 allows you to virtualize multiple operating system on your Linux desktop. The VM images should be interchangeable between windows and Mac OS X VMware Fusion 2.x.

1) Once you get the software from www.vmware.com put it on the desktop. The open terminal and run the commands below.
sudo sh VMware-Workstation-6.5.1-126130.x86_64.bundle

The install should open up and begin to install. Once it has completed you can find the application in the Applications / System Tools
