The issue is that the vmware modules don't create sysfs entries so udev 
doesn't pick them up and create device nodes.

In /etc/udev there is a file called links.conf

The form...

M node fooargs

...in links.conf transforms into...

mknod --mode=600 /dev/$node $fooargs

... in the udev init script

That of course forces the nodes to be mode 0600 (-rw-------) but you can 
almost certainly do something with that.
