VMWare Image for CDH3

I made this posting 2 months ago (http://getsatisfaction.com/cloudera/topics/vmware_image_for_cdh3) and apparently Cloudera has yet to release a fix for this VMWare:

In any case, here is the same posting:

VMWare image for CDH3 -- eth0 does not show up as an installed driver. The previous cloudera-training-0.3.3 VmWare image did not have this issue, but cloudera-training-0.3.4
does seem to be missing the appropriate driver. By default I can't access the Internet.

I managed to bypass this issue by activating eth1 by editing /etc/network/interfaces:
sudo bash 
vi /etc/network/interfaces: 

auto eth1 
iface eth1 inet dhcp 
/etc/init.d/networking restart 
Also, I tried to install VMWare Tools to see if the eth0 issue would go away, but after rebooting, the problem still persisted. I certainly didn't see this issue on the previous VmWare image.

In any case, here are instructions to install VMWare Tools:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` (this is necessary to get the right headers) 
Click on install VMWare Tools 
mount /cdrom 
cd /cdrom 
Copy VMWare tool source code to /tmp and extract the files (the actual filename will depend on your VMWare version [which the VMWare installer would have reported in case of a mismatch]):
cp VMWareTools*.tar.gz /tmp 
cd /tmp 
tar -xzvf VMWareTools*.tar.gz 
cd vmware-tools-distrib/ 
sudo ./vmware-install.pl
