VmWare Fusion Shared folders in CentOS Guest

I'm working on a personal project that requires RHEL, so I'm using CentOS as a free substitute. Using the default options for RHEL5 on fusion didn't work. Nothing was showing up in /mnt/hgfs, which is where shared host folders should show up. Within the steps of this tutorial, I found the trick. I needed to disable SELinux, which means I needed to manually install CentOS rather than using fusion's easy install option.
