The following VMware kernel modules have been found on your system that were
not installed by the VMware Installer. Please remove them then run this
installer again.

it would help to know some of the needed facts in order to help
from "2.6.18-308.4.1.el5"

that "el5"
tells me that you are on some form of
red hat 5 ?
SL5 ?
clear5 ?

but without knowing .........

what operating system is this?
and what version of 5 ?

also what version of vmware
and how are you installing in on this Linux OS
