Angry SuSE 9 + VMware 4 = disaster, help!!!

I've installed a fresh new copy of SuSE 9.


Abit NF7 mobo
Athlon 2700+ CPU
1 gb ram
ATi radeon 9800 Pro video
3com 3c905c-tx nic
SuSE Linux 9 Pro, kernel 2.4.21-99 Athlon.

I also have vmware v4.0.5 build 6030 (oct 2003, the newest build).

I've installed it, but I get an error when running the config program:

None of vmware's built-in vmmon modules is suitable for my running kernel.

It then asks to create one from my source code.

It creates, but with a bunch of errors - a repetition of an error saying that a use of a memory input without lvalue in asm is depreciated.

Upon running emulation, the machine works for a couple of minutes but then hangs.

I've created a new session for a different OS, installed it, and it locks up too.

I looked for preconfigured vmmon modules on vmware's website and found nothing.

Has anybody else had the same problem?
