Code:
$ wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.13.tar.bz2
The headers are in there. Trust me...

If you want some real help perhaps you could start by mentioning what kind of package you want, or at the very least what distro you use so we can deduce it ourself.

I am running the latest Turbo Linux 11F Fuji. I am trying to install vmware player.

When I try to run the vmware-config.pl script it can not find the C kernel headers files. I get the folling error at the bottom of this output:

[root@localhost ~]# vmware-config.pl
Making sure services for VMware Player are stopped.

Stopping VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor OK

Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries.

In which directory do you want to install the mime type icons?
[/usr/share/icons]

What directory contains your desktop menu entry files? These files have a
.desktop file extension. [/usr/share/applications]

In which directory do you want to install the application's icon?
[/usr/share/pixmaps]


** (process:21148): CRITICAL **: egg_desktop_entries_add_group: assertion `egg_desktop_entries_lookup_group (entries, group_name) == NULL' failed
Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Player is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is a kernel header file directory, but it is
not configured yet.

I did a full install and I know that the kernel source is in there. From the output of the script it sounds like I need to configure the C kernel headers but i do not know how to do that.
