FYI - /usr/src/linux/include is default for some distros - however, what VMWare is saying is - that is the default, if yours is in a different spot tell VMWare where it is. You don't need to setup a link to it, or try to get it in that folder. Just tell it where it actually is.
So you didn't need to install a new Kernel. Just the kernel headers for your kernel...
