Hi all

Im pretty new to linux and currently struggling to install VMWare server onto FC9 (gnome). Im getting so far up until it wants the c header files, I tell it the location then it gets so far through then tells me Unable to build the vmmon module.

heres a screendump from the shell.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.26.5-45.fc9.i686/build/include] /lib/modules/2.6.26.5-45.fc9.i686/build/include
