Default VMware server 2.0.2 vmnet problem

I have some problems with installing VMware 2.0.2, and i dont know if this is the right place to ask.

I'm installing VMware server 2.0.2-203138

I'm running Debian kernel 2.6.32-5-686

I'm using GCC-4.3 (To avoid VMware to crash)

And this is the place its going wrong in the configuration:

Building the vmnet module.

Using 2.6.x kernel build system.
make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/build/include/.. SUBDIRS=$PWD SRCROOT=$PWD/. modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686'
  CC [M]  /tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only/driver.o
  CC [M]  /tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only/hub.o
  CC [M]  /tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only/userif.o
In file included from /tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only/userif.c:56:

/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-common/include/linux/poll.h:70: error: previous declaration of poll_initwait was here
make[4]: *** [/tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only/userif.o] Error 1
make[3]: *** [_module_/tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only] Error 2
make[2]: *** [sub-make] Error 2

make: *** [vmnet.ko] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config72/vmnet-only'
Unable to build the vmnet module.

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 really hope someone can help me with this problem.

Best regards
