I don't see anything strange/weird/obviously wrong in the output from the
installation that you sent.

I would heed the advice about logging off and then back on to activate the
file drag and drop capability.  The real indication that things are up
and running is to once again do the listing of /mnt/hgfs.  If you now
see the directory that you configured to be visible in the setup part
of running VMware Player, then things should be good to go.  Logging
of and then back on may be needed for other capabilities, so doing it
can't hurt.
