Did you ever resolve this? On Workstation I've seen this happen quite often, but never in ESX. Usually it's because the VMWare Tools (running as a service I believe) don't come up fast enough or don't come up at all on the guest OS.

Hey dblock , sorry for replying so late. I did solve the problem. You have to install vmware tools. Here is the procedure.http://www.vmware.com/support/ws55/doc/ws_newguest_tools_linux.html
