I had it running on VmWare Workstation and ESX.  Nothing special other  
than the clock problems.  If I remember correctly, after updating the  
kernel and rebooting, you'll need to re-run vmware-config.pl script in  
the guest.

You'd probably want to download and install latest version of vmware  
tools on the guest.  Latest version of vmware tools has kernel modules  
that load perfectly into CentOS 4 kernel (if you attempt to install  
too old version of vmware tools, you'd need to recompile the modules).
