I have used the "search for files" function to find the location of the kernel headers (including "show hiddden & backup files") yet the are nowhere to be found. Yet Gnome Package Mngr says they are installed. Could someone tell me the location so I can tell the vmware player wizard? Please no redirection to shell scripts that do not work, just the location :-)

Take a deep breath. Then, as root, run this one-liner:
# yum install kernel-headers
Most of us who have been down the VMware road have encountered potholes
like this. Some day you'll look back and laugh.
