There are several threads on this. It's a bug in the Anaconda installer
that installs an i586 series kernel in stead of an i686 kernel like it's
supposed to.

The fix is to install the i686 kernel manually, along with the i686
version of kernel-devel. After that, VMware Workstation and Server will
both install and run with no issues.

     I already manually installed the i686 kernel and the kernel-devel but I still come up with the same problem in installing VMware.  What should I do next or where do I go to find out step-by-step to fix this problem?
