This happends when my friend tries to install vmware 4.0 on Slackware 9.0

Extracting the sources of the vmmon module.

Building the vmmon module.

make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config2/vmmon-only'
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config2/vmmon-only'
make[2]: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config2/vmmon-only/driver-2.4.20'
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config2/vmmon-only/driver-2.4.20'
