    Can't install VMWare Player. Can't find Makefile.cpu in headers file?

    I should mention while trying to solve this same problem on a VMWare Server install I came across a blog post telling me to unrar and then delete vmsock.rar, vmnet.rar, vmmon.rar, and some other modules in a folder. I forget what site told me to do this and where the folder was that housed these modules. I'm guessing that's where the "modinfo: could not find module" error comes from. So that being said anyone know how I can get those files back? That's not the main problem though because even before I stupidly deleted them I had this makefile.cpu problem.

    This is a BackTrack 4r2 install based on Ubuntu 8.04.
