Default VMware server 2.0 and Debian Squeeze?

I went and upgraded my Lenny to Squeeze and now VMware server does not
compile.

Is it possible, and if it is, how?

Preparing to reinstall lenny now...dammit.

A visit to a strange place will bring fresh work.

Q: How many gradual (sorry, that's supposed to be "graduate") students
does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: "I'm afraid we don't know, but make my stipend tax-free, give my
advisor a $30,000 grant of the taxpayer's money, and I'm sure he
can tell me how to do the gruntwork for him so he can take the
credit for answering this incredibly vital question."
