How do I get VMware Workstation 8.0.4 working on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit?

I am totally new to a Unix/Linux based OS. Ubuntu 12.04 is my first Linux experience and I can not install VMware Workstation. I wish to know how to do install it in a step by step way.

I am running Ubuntu 12.04 in a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5831; I have 2 GB of RAM and the detailed specification of my laptop is here.

    ^This and you also have low memory for virtualization purposes. Are you sure you want to proceed with Workstation installation before upgrading your RAM size? – NlightNFotis Aug 12 '12 at 11:36
