    Help getting vmware-player to work

    I installed the latest vmware-player rpm. I located the executable file and this is what I get...

    [avi@localhost ~]$ su
    [root@localhost avi]# whereis vmware
    vmware: /etc/vmware /usr/lib/vmware /usr/share/man/man4/vmware.4.bz2
    [root@localhost avi]# cd /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-player
    bash: cd: /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-player: No such file or directory
    [root@localhost avi]# cd /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmplayer
    bash: cd: /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmplayer: Not a directory
    [root@localhost avi]# cd /usr/lib/vmware/bin
    [root@localhost bin]# vmplayer
    vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
    for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
    [root@localhost bin]#
    the thing is there is no usr/bin/ I also searched for it to make sure it wasn't in another location and nothing showed up. What should I do?

    in the etc/vmware folder there are 3 files. one named location, one named not_configured, and one named I tried SHing the but that didn't give me any option that I think could help

    [avi@localhost vmware]$ su
    [root@localhost vmware]# sh
    Usage: {kind|version|convertdb|uninstall|uninstall_without_rpm}

    The is the foremost step to setup the vmware to run on the machine. This is a mandatory step and usually it is present in /usr/bin/ If it is not present, you may opt to re-install vmware. gives you the type of installation.
    for instance

    # kind
    gives you what was the source you used to install the vmware application.
