Newbie to CentOS and attempting to run it under a windows xp host.
I see there is  a open version of vmware tools available but getting  
various dependency errors when attempting to install. the rpms.

Will these tools install for ver CentOS 5 or are they for an earlier 

P.S. How closely does CentOS match  Redhat binaries? VMware tools (from 
workstation 6) install just fine but could not be configured due to 
various errors.
