    hi guys
    i'm having some real problems getting this up and running, i can install okay but when it comes to configuring i get to this point

    Thank you.

    Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries.

    In which directory do you want to install the mime type icons?
    [/usr/share/icons]

    What directory contains your desktop menu entry files? These files have a
    .desktop file extension. [/usr/share/applications]

    In which directory do you want to install the application's icon?
    [/usr/share/pixmaps]

    Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

    None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation is suitable for your
    running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
    your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] yes

    Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

    The path "/usr/src/linux/include" is not an existing directory.

    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

    hope you can help, this is the final sticking point,
    Paul
