Default Further Problems

Following Falko's advice I moved boldly through the original steps. All went well till I ran:

root@C800:/tmp# cd vmware-server-distrib
root@C800:/tmp/vmware-server-distrib# ./vmware-install.pl


Because I had used the rpm version I got the following sequence

**************
A previous installation of VMware software has been detected.

The previous installation was made by the rpm installer (version 3).

Converting the rpm3 installer database format
to the tar3 installer database format.

error: package VMware-server is not installed
Failure

Execution aborted.

**************


I don't know how to remove the original version.
What do I do now?
