I upgraded to 1.0.7 from 6 without issue.  Since your machine is brand 
new, my first thought was you may not have installed the appropriate 
rpms, kernel* comes to mind.

CentOS52[root at beast ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i vmware
xorg-x11-drv-vmware-10.13.0-2.1
VMware-server-1.0.7-108231

CentOS52[root at beast ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i 2.6.18-92.1.10
kernel-devel-2.6.18-92.1.10.el5.centos.plus
kernel-headers-2.6.18-92.1.10.el5.centos.plus
kernel-2.6.18-92.1.10.el5.centos.plus

I wonder if this is better for the virt list:
