I was wondering if anyone has ever been able to install VMWare server on a Debian (testing) host? I have Debian Lenny at home and want to be able to load a virtual Linux machine to test and break applications w/o impacting my home machine 1st. Seems very logical however I went to VMWare's site and downloaded the latest version 1.0.3 and then extracted the tarball as seen below and from there I am very lost. I can't find much documentation on getting VMWare running on Debian so if anyone has any feedback or help, I would really appreciate it!

PS - The README file that came in the tarball is super generic and refers me to a site that really just does not help.
