which guest did you try?

There should not be any vmnet driver used unless you installed the vmware tools
which are not installed by default (on purpose).

The default kernel is the kernel-vm (CentOS specific) but the pristine
kernel (and kernel-smp for CentOS-4) are also there.

My TODO list for 2008 contains the "howto" the guest images are generated.

The 4.6 and 5.1 are being built, and will be uploaded this week.
