An easier question (based on how VMWare is packaged) is did you run the 
vmware-config.pl script that comes with the RPM?  It will shutdown any 
running services, and compile the necessary kernel modules for your 
running kernel (if you haven't made them already, and, no, just 
installing the RPM does not do this), and then start them up again.

After that (if it was successful), you should be able to connect to the 

Good Luck!
