Just a thought.

I can remember having similar difficulties the first time I tried to
install the VMware from cdrom. From memory the problem was to do with 
the cursor not being where I thought it was. That is to say it was in 
the X desktop instead of being in the VMware window.

The hourglass does get tedious after several hours.
