In a terminal... sudo apt-get install make

You'll need numerous other packages before your installation is molded
into a "developers tool" that lets you compile kernel module stuff like
VMWare Server, such as Libtool, GCC, CPP, Autoconf/Automake, your
kernel headers and sources, X11 libraries, etc.

There's a howto that should walk you through that process painlessly,
however I haven't actually followed it. You should read the document
thoroughly before beginning, especially any comments or rewrites at
the bottom.
