Hi all, 

I want to use the vmxnet driver for a guest RedHat ES version 4 running
under a Vmware ESX server. To be able to use the vmxnet driver; I have
to install the vmware tools. The kernel sources are not available in Red
Hat 4, so I have install gcc, get the kernel source, install the source
rpm with  

up2date --install gcc 
up2date --get-source kernel 
up2date rpm-build 
rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.9-11.EL.src.rpm 

But when I execute ./vmware-config-tools.pl, I receive : 

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] 

Do we have to build the kernel to be able to install the vmxnet driver ?

Any idea ? 
Thanks a lot for your help.
