    I'm running a Mac OS X 10.5 on VMWare Workstation. Anyone know how to save the files on to the image of the Mac? Like transfer files? Because I dont get internet on VMWare.

    Can't you just set up a folder to share or install VMwareTools and drag and drop?

    VMwaretools? So if I install this I can just drag and drop? Will it be erased next time I open it?

    I'm doing this because I already formatted the USB Drive, and got the Hackintosh on the usb drive. Now I just need to put the boot loader on there.

    Vmware tools is were you have a word doc on you pc vm (or what ever os) desktop and you can drag it to your mac desktop. It does a lot more also.

    Couldn't I just use a USB drive put the files on it, and drag it to the VMWare Mac desktop?

    It's on the USB Drive, and the Mac.

    I'm confused on how to install the tools

    I'm stuck on this step

    ./vmware-install.pl

    I click on that it just opens up as a notepad. How do I install?
