VMware Tools 5.0 Woes

This weekend I tried installing VMware tools on Fedora 3 & 4, then today Makdrake 10.1 as far as I can tell all the installs have failed as the vmxnet adapter does not show up in the Network GUI, everytime I try to install I get the following error and my screen goes black and X restarts:

(EE) Failed to load module '/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a" (once-only module, 135962511)

(WW) VMWARE(0): Failed to set up write combining range (Oxf000000,0x1000000)

I have been trying to fix this for like 3 days now, any help would be appreciated.

Anyone know how to fix this? I commented out all the load glx lines in the x86 config file but when I tried to install VMWare tools again, at the point where it asks you if you want to changed screen resolutions it does the same thing, blank scree, X restarts and the error is present.
