The location of the C header files can be found in:

/usr/src/kernel/`uname -r`/include

which will currently translate to:

/usr/src/kernel/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/include

Note: I have installed VMWare workstation on both an AMD X64 and an
Intel Centrino. The one giving me a problem was the Centrino, since by
default the I686 kernel source was loaded by default. You will need to
erase that source and install the i586 source, then run
"vmware-config.pl" to complete the installation...
