Install VMware Server 2 in Ubuntu 10.10

First entry for new year - 2011.
Now, i try install Ubuntu. And i have one idea: Install VMware Server in one computer, and use VMware client to connect to server :)).
Now, i assign static IP for server, is
Next, download Vmware Server. My OS is Ubuntu 10.10
Register one free account and you will download it. Chose Vmware Server for Linux OS, type (.gz).
Install some compoment:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential xinetd
Then, download script:
wget --no-check-certificate
Note file:
 tar xvfz 
You will have folder: raducotescu-vmware-server-linux-*
mv VMware-server-*.tar.gz raducotescu-vmware-server-linux-2.6.3x-kernel-71f8b66/

sudo ./
In install process, you can Enter to next, but notice:

 The current administrative user for VMware Server is ''. Would you like to specify a different administrator? [no] <--  yes
Please specify the user whom you wish to be the VMware Server administrator <--your account to login
 Please enter your 20-character serial number? <--Your serial number 
If finish, you can go to: http://localhost:8222 or https:localhost:8333 to login adminstrator web. Create Datastore ( if need), and Virtual Machine.
If you use Ubuntu 10.10, default web browse is Firefox 3.6.x. You can`t connect to virtual computer. Because VM remote plugin error with 3.6.x. You can using FF 3.5.x.
But, i like using VM client, don`t want use web access.
First: download add-on:
cd /tmp
wget –no-check-certificate https://localhost/ui/plugin/vmware-vmrc-linux-x86.xpi

if in other computer, change localhost to server IP

mkdir -p bin/vmwareconsole
cd bin/vmwareconsole
unzip /tmp/
cd /bin
ln -s /tmp/bin/vmwareconsole/plugins/vmware-vmrc vm-console

Now, you start: vm-console
Host: ServerIP:8333
Finish Lab.
