Well, you can try downloading the .tar.gz file from VMware's Web site and
try getting installed from it. The problem is, however, that I don't know if
VMware 4.5.3 propietary components are compatible with current 2.6 kernels.
In case of problems, I suggest applying the latest vmware-any-any patches
for VMWare from: http://platan.vc.cvut.cz/ftp/pub/vmware/
