Question How to install VMware tools in redhat 9?

I am running vmware 4.0 on windows and have successfully installed redhat 9 on vmware. I need to install vmware tools before starting x but had trouble when it was looking for location of C header files matching my kernel. I pointed it to /usr/include and then got "the directory of kernel headers 2.4.20 does not match your current running kernel 2.4.20-8". Then it asks for the location of C header files again. I would like help on installing the vmware tools and any help will be appreciated.
