Let me be precise. I have VMWare server running right now on this laptop on 
which I'm typing this message. In 'About' it says it is version 1.0.7 
build-108231; my running kernel is -
# uname -r
2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686
the patch I'm using to make it work is called vmware-update-2.6.27-5.5.7-2 
which I found using Google - it has survived several kernel upgrades and 
supercedes the any-any patches

I haven't bothered to install VMWare Server 2.X because at the moment, I have 
no need for it, and as you point out, it's a bit more complicated. I haven't 
tried any of the linux-land alternatives yet for the same reason. My approach 
may work for some, if not for all, but, to simply make the blanket statement 
that VMWare server is broken for F10 or for Kernels > 2.6.26 is wrong.
