We have a new video today which is specifically geared towards users of our VMware Workstation product.
This video discusses and demonstrates upgrading from VMware Workstation version 8 to VMware Workstation version 9. The video tutorial depicts the process from a Windows-based environment's perspective, however the instructions also apply to a Linux based installation.
You will need a valid My VMware account in order to download the Workstation installer binary from the vmware.com website.
