With VMware Server you can install guest operating systems as Windows, Linux, NetWare or Solaris.
First install the following packages.
Afterwards open http://www.vmware.com/download/server/ in your browser. Install the latest version (.rpm) and register to get a serial number.
Next we have to patch the VMware Server so that it is able to handle the new kernel (2.6.25) (root privileges needed).
cp /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmmon.tar /tmp/vmware/
cp /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet.tar /tmp/vmware/
tar xvf vmmon.tar
tar xvf vmnet.tar
patch -p1 < ../vmnet-2.6.25.patch
patch -p1 < ../vmmon-2.6.25.patch
rm -f *.tar
tar cfv vmnet.tar vmnet-only/
tar cfv vmmon.tar vmmon-only/
cp *.tar /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/
Answer all the questions with "yes" and accept the license agreement (if you agree with it). After that you'll be asked a few questions about install paths etc. - simply hit enter for every question. In the end you have to enter the serial number - the VMware Server is now available in the GNOME applications menu.
