[CentOS] VMware not correctly configured for running kernel

Something happened over the weekend power-related on my VMware test
server, and when I came back and restarted my VMware server box
(running CentOS), I got the following message:

"VMware Server is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
for the running kernel. To (re-)configure it, invoke the
following command: /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl."

I ran that .pl script, answered all the questions (just entering in
the default values), and all seems to work ok now.

Is this someting VMware related?  CentOS 4 related?  Or possibly some
misconfiguration on my part? This box has been working fine for months
(and has been rebooted many times), so I'm not sure what "changed"
(certainly nothing on the host OS level).

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
