fc6 and vmware configuration


has anybody successfully installed vmware server on an FC6 machine?

During the compilation of the vmnet module a "linux/config.h" cannot be found.

I know that this file was tagged as deprecated and has possibly been removed in fc6. I am wondering though why nobody else has this problem!?
