As you can read in the docs Fedora Core 6 is not a supported host OS
for VMWare. I believe you do need that any-any patch. I know I needed
it when I installed VMWare Server (also free of charge these days) on
Fedora a couple of months ago. See
<http://communities.vmware.com/message/76957> for more information on
the any-any patch.
Just this week, I installed VMware Server on Ubuntu Feisty 64-bit on a
Core 2 Duo box at work. I'm running Windows XP SP2 as a guest in the
thing (requirement for the CrackBerry), and like Nils, I too needed the
any-any patch. But it does work, and rather well.
I haven't (yet) tried installing VMware on any Fedora releases, but if I
were going to do that, I'd lean more toward RHEL or CentOS. That's
because that's what VMware, Inc. is more likely to support as a host
OS. Given my results with Feisty64, I'd guess that RHEL/CentOS probably
would work pretty well with it, too.
