You must have missed the thread on this earlier today.

After you have run vmware-config.pl, do:

# cp -rp /dev/vm* /etc/udev/devices
# chkconfig vmware reset

You only need to do these once.

I'm assuming that you have the FC3 errata update for the udev package
(http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/3/i386/udev-039-10.FC3.6.i386.rpm) installed.
