Have you found this site:

I was reading it to find out how to get VMWare-server running on F12....
 It contains pointers to a couple of shell scripts that can be pulled
apart and applied by hand if necessary.  It is purportedly said to work
on a 2.6.31 kernel for F12, not sure if it will work yet on the current
2.6.32 kernel in F12.  Not sure if there is more that will break it in
