Need help with VMWare Tools

Hey guys,

First time playing with Fedora4 and a bit confused. I am trying to install the VMWare tools onto Fedora4, it asks for the c header files so I did this:

yum install kernel-devel

Tried running the VMWare tools config again and it still says it can't find the header files. Any thoughts? I tried looking for the headers but don't seem to be in the normal places. Oh, I tried this as well

yum install kernel-source [not found]
yum install kernel-sourcecode [not found]

Sorry, old RedHat man; guess I am a bit rusty!

To install - you need these things

yum install gcc* (get everything gcc releated)
yum install kernel-devel (get the kernel source)

install vmware workstation 5.

get the patch from this website.

http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/
vmware-any-any-update93.tar.gz 19-Jul-2005 00:10 269k

install vmware, then run the patch

then reboot

should work fine.
