You unpack the tar (to /opt/vmware), and then run vmware-install.pl,
which copies the files to the right places /usr/lib/vmware/,
/etc/vmware/, /etc/init.d/...).

So basically I would say the procedure is the same as with any other
linux distribution.

Gnome should have any kind of autostart.

The day Microsoft makes something that doesn't suck is probably the day
they start making vacuum cleaners.
