VMWare Server 2 & Ubuntu kernel upgrade

Today is the first time I ran "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" on the machine that runs VMWare Server 2 on Hardy Server.  It's actually a lot painless than I expected.  All I needed to do was to run "sudo" after the kernel upgrade.  The only thing I didn't quite know to do was to have the headers ready before the vmware recompile.  That's just a "sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)".

Then I sorta did the same thing on a Ubuntu guest (Hardy as well with a generic kernel), expecting to run  But that turned out to be unnecessary.  Not sure why, as I had so much trouble last time.
