ok iv got a possible soloution

someone else posted this

I extracted the VMWare workstation tar file under my regular user account and I run the installation script using sudo. The issue was, that the files got extracted with the permissions set from my user account (umask 007) and the files have been installed with those permissions. After extracting the tar file with root permissions (sudo) and re-install VMware everything worked fine.

My problem is how do i extract the .tar.gz file as root? the files called VMware-server-1.0.6-91891.tar.gz

and its located /home/coubury/VMware-server-1.0.6-91891.tar.gz

add the p option to the tar command to preserve permissions...
