    Talking [SOLVED] Install VMWare Player in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

    Hi Guys,
    I wanted to install VMWare Player on Ubuntu 8.04 so that I could run the NST (Network Security Toolkit) v 1.8.0 on VMWare. I downloaded the .tar.gz file from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
    ,and when I untarred it and tried to run, vmware-install.pl, and followed the instructions, when I was asked where the C headers for the current Linux kernel version I was running (2.6.24-19-generic), it said it couldn't find the directory, /usr/src/linux/include.

    Does anyone know where the C headers for the current kernel version I am running are located in Ubuntu?
    Also, does anyone know any good guides where I could install VMWare Player on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS? I've searched Google for guides, and they don't work (I even tried: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=832753, but to no avail)! And, if someone knows how to do this from experience I am happy to hear from them as well. Please help!!

    He may also need to install gcc, gcc+, make, and the Kernel source.

    Why not just install VMware server 1.06?

    Thank you very much!
    However, I installed QEmu instead, which works just as fine as VMWare.
