WMware Workstastion 7 on Fedora 11

To day I wanted to install VMware Workstastion 7 on my Fedora to build some Windows virtual machine for my favourite games, I downloaded VMware Workstation 7 32-bit for my architecture here

md5sum: a4286d08c2b302f1d3a164dcdc36c884

This is what I've done:
# sh ./VMware-Workstation-....bundle
Install Wizard will appear and click next with default option unless you know what to choose.

When finished, start VMware, if it requires kernel-headers, you should try this:
[root@fedora ~]# uname -r
[root@fedora ~]# yum install kernel-devel     

 Package         Arch     Version           
 kernel-devel    i586 

If the "version" of kernel-devel is equal to your kernel version, just "y" to install it.

But my kernel is, I've found them on testing (maybe unstable) area:
I downloaded 2 file and install them manually using rpm:
# rpm -Uvh kernel-headers-
# rpm -Uvh kernel-devel-

Now, I'll show you some snapshorts of VMware with Backtrack 4 Pre Final :D
