Question How to install VMWare Server 1.0 on Ubuntu 10?

I found this great post on installing on version 9.

With a grain of salt I followed the procedure (substituting the newer versions of the source, kernel, etc.). However, the VMWare installation complained that I had to build vmmon for the kernel, and every time I tried it bombed out.

First it complained about not finding asm/semaphore.h, so I found where it was, created an asm folder, and copied the contents (from the linux/ folder). Eventually I got down to this build error.

Any ideas? I tried VMWare Server 2.0, but the problem I couldn't get around was that the web based admin console plugin is not compatible with Firefox 3.6, and I don't know how to downgrade / install Firefox to 3.5.

My existing Windows box is running VMWare 1.0, and I like the admin interface much better (much faster and more stable). I am trying to replace the unstable Windows host with a Linux box.

I run through the vmware install script, and when I build vmmon, this is the final error:

/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only/./include/vm_basic_asm_x86.h:443: warning: "_MSC_VER" is not defined
In file included from /tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only/common/vmciContext.c:30:
/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only/common/hostif.h:39: warning: "WINNT_DDK" is not defined

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-'
make: *** [vmmon.ko] Error 2

Unable to build the vmmon module.
