A co-worker and I recently went through this. Seems the trick is to install=
 xf86-video-vmware-10.16.9 (we are using 8.1-RELEASE), then re-run the vmwa=
re-config.pl file that you un-packed from the vmware-tools tarball, then ru=
n "X -configure" (as root), then copy /root/xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.=
conf (making appropriate backups first, of course). We were able to achieve=
 1600x1200 resolution.
