Alternately, install the i686 versions of the kernel and kernel-devel
RPM packages. The most convenient way to upgrade is to use the command:

rpm -Uvh --force <rpm package file name>

This will replace files and clean up old versions. You can then install
and configure VMware Workstation using the i686 kernel.
