Darren:

The latest version is VMware-workstation-4.5.2-8848. I am running this
on the 2.6.6-1.427 kernel without any problems.

This was brought to my attention in an earlier post this past weekend.
Unfortunately my Linux server at work had a network connection problem,
so I cannot tell you the name of the thread.

I also had a problem on one of my virtual Windoze (XP Pro) machines  --
could not install VMware tools (my W2K was fine). This happened because
I had removed the CDROM. After adding it back, I still had problems, so
I created a new virtual machine, backed-up the current one, and then
decided to upgrade the virtual hardware... That did the trick...

All others --- if you are using VMware workstation, make sure you
install the latest.

Ed
