[CentOS] VMWare

The only time you'll need to upgrade the vm_mod module is if it won't load
into a newer kernel. When you run vmware-config.pl, it'll tell you so and
prompt you to create a new module. Pretty painless.

I just upgraded my kernel via yum and I didn't need to make any changes for
vmware to continue to work optimally.

You were rigth it is really easy to install, and has no comparation 
with QEMU it is like being in an old VW and then in a Bugatty!! :)
I have only one concern it had to compile a module for my kernel, so
when I update my linux Kernel with yum, i will loose my VMWare ?
I think yum is not take care of that :)
