I had no such problem with vmware when I had to use it a year or so back.
Though I found in another forum suggesting this..-->

That is not really need of that , all you have to do little changes and see if it works and if it dont' then try other kernel.

How to install kernel source package

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] /usr/include

The header files in /usr/include are generally for C libraries, not for the
running kernel. If you do not have kernel header files in your /usr/src
directory, you probably do not have the kernel-source package installed. Are
you sure that /usr/include contains the header files associated with your
running kernel? [no] yes

The directory of kernel headers (version 2.4.20) does not match your running
kernel (version 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp).  Even if the module were to compile
successfully, it would not load into the running kernel. :P
