Re: vmware and SMP kernel?

What version of VMware are you using?

Not exactly a Fedora question, but the software in question is running
on FC2.  I'm having a problem installing vmware 4 on my stock FC2 SMP
kernel.  The kernel running is 2.6.5-1.358SMP.  The box is a shuttle
with a 3.0ghz processor.  The processor supports hyper-threading, so by
default it boots into 2.6.5-1.358SMP.  I also have the option of booting
into plain old 2.6.5-1.358, but I never do as that is not the default

I'm assuming this is all normal and fine.  My problem is when installing
vmware, I get to the question:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your
running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

I don't have the option of pointing it towards
/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358SMP, because it doesn't exist!  Just the plain
old non-SMP kernel source is there, and vmware doesn't like it.  What
would be the easiest way to place my existing kernel source into this
/usr/src/ folder?  I've tried using synaptic to install this source, but
the SMP source isn't available in synaptic either, just the non-SMP one.

Any ideas?
