Hi Don,

Try the information in the following URL.


Or more specifically the following.

This section has the following instructions to make kernel source files 
usable so vmware-config.pl can compile the kernel modules. 

   1. Install kernel-source.$ARCH.rpm. 
   2. Change to the /usr/src/linux directory. Run the following command:
   make cloneconfig 
   3. Run the following command:
   make modules_prepare 

I was also having problems running VMWare Workstation 5 on a Suse 9.3 host 
and this fixed the problem for me.

Haven't been able to try VMWare on FC4 yet as I got a boot block signal 
error after installing. Still investigating but I suspect it may be 
something to do with the LVM.
