    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:

    Code:
    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:

    I really hope someone can help me with this problem.
