Installing VMWare Workstation 6.0.2 on 2.6.24 Kernel

My environment: Redhat Linux FC8 x86_64
VMWare version: Workstation 6.0.2

Tried to install VMWare workstation 6.0.2 on my Linux box with 2.6.24 kernel running and failed. Here is a quick how-to on how to resolve it:

2. Untar it
3. vmware-player-distrib/ - when it asks you to run answer NO
4. Download VMWare patch vmware-any-any-update-116.tgz
All VMWare patch files here:
