VMWare Server on Ubuntu Hardy

This is all you need, but the libgcc was what tripped me up:

# unzip VMware-server-linux-client-1.0.5-80187.zip
# tar xzf VMware-server-console-1.0.5-80187.tar.gz -C /tmp
# cd /tmp/vmware-server-console-distrib
# sudo ./vmware-install.pl
# sudo cp /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/vmware-server-console/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/

Matt, enable the partners repository and you can install it via APT. But they are slow to update it.
