    Drag & drop from MAC to host maybe??? I'm probably wrong but that's all I could guess unless transferring to somewhere else.

    You can install 'VMware Tools' which allows drag and drop features from Windows to your Mac image.

    You should be getting Internet. I run Workstation 7.x and Internet works by default settings on the latest OSX.

    My internet works too on my Vmware workstation, you can transfer the files to Usb drive and then connect it to workstation and copy from there.

    How do you install Vmware tools on Vmware, when I click update the Vmware software, after the installation, my Vmware doesn't open because of Darwin issue.

    Can you really drag and drop from Windows to Vmware ?

    Yes, It "mounts" my Windows C: drive into Finder of the virtual OSX. Installing VMware Tools took a couple of tries, but all I did was run it from the desktop of OSX. It may have been packaged with my Darwin ISO that I run to boot Snowleopard. I did not do it through the VMware update option.
