I'm running about the same kernel (2.6.24-1-686).
I'm running also VMWare server rel. 1.0.5 (latest).
Again, same thing.
First i install VMWare Server with its installer (vmware-install.pl)
and then, when the installer fails creating modules, i use the
runme.pl included in vmware-any-any-update package (rel 116).
That's what I did.

Maybe posting error will help us.
vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
Anyway, if you update often your system (as me), the problem you
encountered could be related to the current gcc version (different
from the one used to compile the kernel).
If so, you can recreate the link of /usr/bin/gcc to point to the right
gcc version, for example:
# ls -l /usr/bin/gcc*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root * * *7 2008-04-09 21:27 /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-4.1
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root *82064 2008-03-29 18:16 /usr/bin/gcc-3.4
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 195844 2008-03-10 00:10 /usr/bin/gcc-4.1
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 192252 2008-03-24 01:09 /usr/bin/gcc-4.2
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 207008 2008-04-02 05:04 /usr/bin/gcc-4.3
# rm /usr/bin/gcc
# ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-4.2 /usr/bin/gcc
(of course gcc version may be different).
...and the retry with the installer or with the any-any-update.
Or, better, you can force the use of a specific GCC version, but i
don't remember how do that in this case.
This is what I did:
$: CC=gcc-4.1 ./runme.pl
This way it forces the compiler to be gcc-4.1
Hope it helps you.
Thanks for your help anyway.
