Trouble with VMware Server Installation
When I run `sudo ./vmware-install.pl`I am prompted with the following:
Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override. Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.1.3", while you are trying to use "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3.2". This configuration is not recommended and VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3.2" anyway? [no]
Using built-in specs. Target: i486-linux-gnu Configured with: ../src/configure -v --with-pkgversion='Debian 4.3.2-1.1' --with-bugurl=file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-4.3/README.Bugs --enable-languages=c,c++,fortran,objc,obj-c++ --prefix=/usr --enable-shared --with-system-zlib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --without-included-gettext --enable-threads=posix --enable-nls --with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/include/c++/4.3 --program-suffix=-4.3 --enable-clocale=gnu --enable-libstdcxx-debug --enable-objc-gc --enable-mpfr --enable-targets=all --enable-cld --enable-checking=release --build=i486-linux-gnu --host=i486-linux-gnu --target=i486-linux-gnu Thread model: posix gcc version 4.3.2 (Debian 4.3.2-1.1)

Wow, problem solved. VMware Server 2 now completely installed.
Ugh, I searched Google up and down but could not find anything. Mostly because I wasn't search of what keywords to use.
Anyway, thank you so much. I wanted to get a second person's opinion first before I did anything since the messages I was getting referred to expert-level tasks like compiling the kernel.
