Install the VMware tools prerequisites:
yum install make gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers glibc-headers perl

Mount the VMware Tools CD (after inserting it into the VM)

mkdir /mnt/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
Copy the install bundle from the CD and extract it.
cp /mnt/cdrom/VMware-Tools*.tar.gz /tmp/
cd /tmp/
tar xvfz VMwareTools*.tar.gz

Run the installer, default on all prompts works fine.
cd /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib
./vmware-install.pl
(or)
