Thanks for the reply. I copied the files to /usr/src/linux/include/linux

Got me a step further:

/lib/modules/2.4.2-4GB/build/include/linux/config.h:2: unterminated character constant
make[2]: *** [driver.d] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config1/vmmon-only/driver-2.4.2-4GB'
make[1]: *** [deps] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config1/vmmon-only'
make: *** [auto-build] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/vmware-config1/vmmon-only'
Unable to build the vmmon module.

For more information on how to troubleshoot module-related problems, please have
a look at "";.

Execution aborted.

See the reasoning above. All files that need to be replaced to properly
build the kernel are in /boot: vmlinuz.autoconf.h, vmlinuz.config and
vmlinuz.version.h. vmlinuz.autoconf.h and vmlinuz.version.h. have to be
copied into /usr/src/linux/include/linux/{version,autoconf}.h Now the
compilation should do fine.
