should be there if they're not installed. if they aren't there then install the linux kernel source or kernel header package which should put them there OR /usr/src/linux(version-number)/include/linux/include

I also have run into this problem as will when i used "up2date" to redhats lattest kernel, 2.4.18-26.8.0 after that vmware and my nvidia drivers geeked out. Eventually I rolled the system back to the previous kernel, 2.4.18-24.8.0. I got my nvidia driver working again but i still can get vmware to work. I dont know if they moved the C header files or what. I used several paths to no success. In my /usr/src/ directory I can only see my src's for my 2.4.18-26.8.0 kernel which I am not using. I need the 2.4.18-24.8.0 src's. Can anyone help.

Thanks,
Greg
