i am just installing vmware to have a look at,
i agreed to the license and everything but there is one part(oh oh here comes the newbie question)
where it asks for C header of my kernel and point to (in brackets)

insdtall the kernel-headers package, or the kernel-source package, either should work, but you might want to make a symlnik from /usr/src/linux/include to that place if you install the entire source.

And make sure that the version of the kernel(headers) you download is the same as the version you are running.
You can find out what version you have using uname -r.
