VMWare Server

So I downloaded the latest version of VMware and installed this on my Debian box but now I don't know what is the next step...

stormshadow:/home/cwilliams/Desktop# alien VMware-server-1.0.1-29996.i386.rpm
Warning: Skipping conversion of scripts in package VMware-server: postinst postrm preinst prerm
Warning: Use the --scripts parameter to include the scripts.
vmware-server_1.0.1-29997_i386.deb generated
stormshadow:/home/cwilliams/Desktop# dpkg -i vmware-server_1.0.1-29997_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package vmware-server.
(Reading database ... 77175 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking vmware-server (from vmware-server_1.0.1-29997_i386.deb) ...
Setting up vmware-server (1.0.1-29997) ...
How do I start the server? I see now I have a /etc/vmware/ directory but I am not sure how to enable this and get more virtual sessions going. This is my 1st time messing with this and I figured now is the time since it's free.
