You can always reconfigure the kernel source to match your running kernel.  
Download the matching 'kernel-source' for the running kernel, copy 
the  '/boot/config-2.6.<version>' to the top level of the kernel source tree, 
renaming it to '.config', google 'make oldconfig' to see how this is supposed to 

BTW, I used an old Vmware workstation binary for years and had to stay with the 
2.6.18 kernel for since it was the last supported kernel for my version of Vmware 
WS, I finally switch to VirtualBox this year so I could upgrade to Debian Squeeze 
64 bit, it is nice to not jump through  the kernel/header issues with old 
versions of Vmware.
