"Vmware kernel modeule Update"
Before you can run Vmware, several modules must be vompiled and loaded
into the running kernel

KERNEL HEADERS 2.6.32.45-0.3-DEFAULT
Kernel headers for version 2.6.32.45-0.3-default were not found. If you
installed them in a non-default path you can specefy the path below....

Hi
You need to install the kernel development pattern from the DVD. In
general make, gcc, kernel-source, kernel-syms and linux-kernel-headers.
It needs to compile the modules.

The other option if your CPU is Vx capable, is to use kvm?
