There aren't any vmware tools for a vmware Virtual Mac yet. VMWare Fusion 2 will introduce vmtools for mac os x server.

The closest is the vmtools for Linux, but to work on a vmMac, they need to be modified, and that is still a work in progress.

Is anybody aware of an update to this thread?
I know they are Tools available for Leopard (Server), but it would be nice to have Tiger (Server) upgraded with Tools too.
