Sounds to me like you don't have the kernel sources installed. What do you have in /usr/src ?

cheers

I would expect to see a directory there called 'linux' that would hold the kernel source. You need to download the source that matches whatever kernel you are running and extract it to /usr/src/linux. Then vmware will be able to build it's kernel module. I would imagine this will be on the disks that came with your distro.

cheers
