Question How To Install VMware Server 2 On Debian Lenny

I followed this howto

I signed up for free, got a license and downloaded the tar.gz and proceeded to
but there was a problem:
None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your
running kernel.  Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]
So I hit enter for yes ... next thing is ...
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]
and again enter ...
For more information on how to troubleshoot module-related problems, please
visit our Web site at "http://www.vmware.com/go/unsup-linux-products" and

Execution aborted.
I checked out both links the first didn't help the second didn't work ...
So help is appreciated ;-)

P.S. I created the mentioned symlink
ln -sf /usr/bin/gcc-4.1 /usr/bin/gcc

Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

Stopping VMware autostart virtual machines:
   Virtual machines                                                   failed
Stopping VMware management services:
   VMware Virtual Infrastructure Web Access
   VMware Server Host Agent                                           failed
Stopping VMware services:
   VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done
   Virtual machine monitor                                             done
