How can I get VMWare player to install on Ubuntu Linux 7.10? The server (from apt-get) needs a serial number, which I do not have.

The VMWare player that I have is an rpm file. How can I install this on a Debian-based distro? ie: Ubuntu.

I registered there, and now I got a thank you / download page, with no serial.

Actually, VMWare Player shouldn't need a serial number. Are you sure you aren't installing VMWare Server?

the player is free as an individual download. if you have the Ace or workstation version the player is already in there.

when you register, you should receive a serial number. but if you have a virtualization supporting CPU, you can use XEN, and leave vmware alone
