Well, I just install the free VMware player on breezy yesterday, so I
think that counts...
First, you need to install gcc-3.4 (apt-get install gcc-3.4).
Open a terminal window to run the installer from. Set the CC environment
variable to gcc-3.4
$ export CC=gcc-3.4
Run the installer. At the point where the kernel modules are built, it
should get the choice of C compiler from the CC variable.
