Big Problem installing VMware on RedHat 7.3

Hi all,
I just installed VMware on my RedHat 7.3 OS and the initial installation seemed to go fine. But when I tried to power on my virtual machine, I got this error message:
VMware Workstation PANIC: (VMX)
Please file an incident and include the contents of
the log file: /root/vmware/winXPHome/winXPHome.log

I really need help getting this to work.. I have searched online and it seems like other people are having some of the same problems, but I am a complete newbie and I need somebody to help me figure out what's going on... any help is greatly appreciated.. Thank you

What versino of VMware are you using? I am using VMware 3.2 on RedHat 7.3 with no issues at all. I do, however, get something similar on my RedHat 8.0 boxes.

When I updated my kernel on my Redhat 7.3 box, I also got the same errors that originally showed up on My RH * box. These are the same problems that I think you are talking about. The patch that is discussed in the RH8 - VMWARE thread also works for RH 7.3

and here is the VMWARE page that talks about it, (yes, it is a HUGE link):**&p_li=
