(This is sort of a "when it still fails"-solution, sorry)

Try to install vmware again, or rerun  vmware-configuration.pl  (or what
ever it was called).  I installed the same version this wekend,
vmware-tools installed as it should just by "activating" the install
option in the menu.
  Btw, you are sure that the tools are not installed?  I recall from
version 2 that it claimed that the tools was not installed but they were
(and they worked).

There is a vmware log somewhere, I have no idea whatever whatever the
"tools install" produces some output there but you can always check.

Hmm, just a thought;  Are you running the "guest OS" package or are you
installing from a real w2k CD?  I did the later as I don't have the
"guest package"

Good luck!
