Thumbs down VMWare tools - OS C Header files

VMWare tools requires the "C header files that match your running kernel". GCC already installed using yum.

OS: RH Fedora 9.

Any idea where to get them, pls?

Installation process (summary)

1. re-installed the vm-ware tools package by running ./vmware-install.pl.

2. updated path file for installation (see output2.log attached)

3. installed gcc using yum

4. install program is prompting me for "location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]" how do I install these?

I installed the package; all I (think I) need is the path so I can proceed to install vmware tools:

i.e. install program is prompting me for "location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]"

If you have the correct version of kernel-devel installed, the directory is detected automatically. If you see "/usr/src/linux/include" as the suggestion, you don't have kernel-devel installed or it doesn't match your kernel version.
