I suppose that you mean VMware Workstation 7.1 / Player 3.1.

VMware officially supports their desktop products on RHEL 5.x, OpenSuSE, 
Ubuntu LTS.

If you're not using Ubuntu LTS then CentOS 5.x -which is binary 
compatible with RHEL 5.x- is more stable to run VMware's desktop products.

I'm not talking about VMware Server 2.x because VMware has abandoned it, 
although I use it on CentOS 5.5 with some workarounds.
