I've seen several posts that the module won't compile.  Are they
I had that problem too, but it was not solved by a patch, just a small trick.


but anyway, I agree with your that maybe if it is for his client maybe
the best option is CentOS, as the have bigger cycles than fedora, and
a server is supposed to be installed for long time.
But it is just my opinion.

I use CentOS and Debian for server aplications and Fedora en Ubuntu for Desktop

I thank you all for your help
I asked the question on the site of centos and got this:
Anyway, vmware-server should always be the base and other machines running as guests inside ... If you need two terminal servers ( a linux based one with ltsp and the other one with M$ TSE) you need to know that such machines are cpu (and memory even) intensives. so don't forget to at least put a lot of memory inside the machine, or divide the load on 2 or more physical machines ... Otherwise, vmware-server installs very quick on CentOS, you don't even have to compile the network modules, since vmware support rhel and so centos ....
So as I understand, you have to install first VMware -server and above it,as guest, the OS's you need.
Centos is a good base for Vmware applics and I hope Stable.
