Install the kernel source and do a make menuconfig (or whatever way you like to do it). Ensure that there is a symbolic link /usr/local/linux, pointing to the sourcetree that you're working in. The kernel headers package should also have been installed. Now do a "make dep && make clean". At this point you would normally make the kernel and modules, but you what you want is to compile the vmware kernel modules, which is why you have to generate the kernel dependencies first.
