Vmware server 2.0.2 installation on fedora 12.

Dear All,

I have installed fc12 on my core2due machine, and I have installed the vmware server on it, its rpm is installed successfully with out any error, after that a message is displayed

The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully.
You can decide to remove this software from your system at any time by
invoking the following command: "rpm -e VMware-server".

Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to
configure it for your running kernel by invoking the
following command: "/usr/bin/".

I tried this command and find the this message

[Akram@localhost Downloads]$ su -c "/usr/bin/"
Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

Stopping VMware autostart virtual machines:
Virtual machines [FAILED]
Stopping VMware management services:
VMware Virtual Infrastructure Web Access
VMware Server Host Agent [FAILED]
Stopping VMware services:
VMware Authentication Daemon [ OK ]
Virtual machine monitor [ OK ]

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] yes

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.4.2", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3". This configuration is not recommended and
VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same
compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3" anyway? [no] yes

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

now it asks me in last lines that "What is the location of Directory of C header files that match your running kernal?"

plz somebody tell me how can I find the answer of this question, where the C header files are resides?

waiting for your response, thanks in advanced.

With Regards,

Download the latest vmware-any-any patch and see beforehand if all the kernel-* packages installed.
