Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries.

In which directory do you want to install the mime type icons?
[/usr/share/icons]

What directory contains your desktop menu entry files? These files have a
.desktop file extension. [/usr/share/applications]

In which directory do you want to install the application's icon?
[/usr/share/pixmaps]

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.22.12-0.1-default/build/include]

Hi guys, thanks form the help. I did a bit of research and managed to resolve the problem.

Had to download the file below.

Extract it, get in the folder and enter ./runme.pl

Everything went smooth. Right now installing Windows XP guest OS.
Cheers.
