I googled this as well (back in February).  I found 2 files:

with which I was able to get VMWare server 2.0.2 running (again) on my
F12 laptop.  I had to aply the patches by hand directly to the
containing .tar files in the RPM.  In fact, I just re-ran for the new kernel for F12, and it
rebuilt successfully.

All I can say about VMWare these days, is that it runs worse and worse
with every kernel update.  It is no longer the lean, sleek VM manager it
once was when I started using it in the FC6 time frame (VMWare-server-1.x).

Good advice about virtual migration is welcome (so that I don't lose my
data in my current virtual machine).
