when i upgrade ubuntu from gutsy to Hardy, VMWare is not functioning

I had VMware workstation 5.5.3 installed in my earlier version of ubuntu. then i upgraded it wont start anymore.

This is bcos of the fact that, None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Workstation is suitable for the new running kernel (2.6.24).  The way I solved it is
1. download the latest version of vmware-any-any package, from the link
this program build the vmmon module for your system.
save the package in the same directory as the vmware distribution file
vmware-any-any-update116 ( I have it in ~/src/VMWare/)

2. tar xzf vmware-any-any-update116.tar.gz
3. cd ~/src/VMWare/vmware-any-any-update116
4. sudo ./runme.pl

this solved my problem, and it is running again!!
