Can't install VMware Server after Player

When I installed Feisty, I chose the VMware Player as one option, just
to have a play. However, I never used it - it's too limited for the
sorts of things I do. So I removed it and tried to install VMware
Server, which is a free download from EMC. It's also in the Universe
However, it won't install, claiming that another VMware product is
installed. There is an optional script to remove an existing product,
but it doesn't help.
I can't install either my download or from the repos. I've tried
reinstalling Player and then removing it with the "complete" option in
Synaptic, to remove config files & so on as well. No difference.
Can anyone tell me what settings or files I need to purge so that I
can install it?
